Between July 2001 and February 2002, OA undertook an archaeological investigation on behalf of Thames Water Utilities on the remediation of former sludge beds in advance of the construction of a new sewage treatment works. The investigation revealed a partial ring-ditch, possibly a borrow pit around a Bronze Age barrow. Two phases of field boundaries were also present, evidence for post-medieval enclosure. The margins of the site were blanketed in alluvium, deposited during the post-medieval period.
