A proposed reservoir, covering an area of 1.75ha, located immediately to the east of Kings Farm, Horningsea, lies within an area of potentially rich archaeological remains, The most significant of these are of Romano-British date, although prehistoric material has been recovered in the area. The site lies on the edge of a gravel terrace, covered in part by alluvium, which in turn may be overlying archaeological deposits. Roman settlements are known to be located on the gravel terrace edges and earlier prehistoric remains lie beneath the alluvium.
