In April 2019 Oxford Archaeology completed a six trench evaluation on land
off Windermere Drive, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. The evaluation
demonstrated that parts of the site had been disturbed during the
construction of a housing development in the 1990s. It also, however, revealed
furrows from ridge and furrow cultivation preserved below a buried topsoil
horizon, and depths of mixed redeposited soils reflecting the levelling of the
topography in the 1990s. Two small ditches on differing alignments to the
furrows were present, and a single small possible Iron Age sherd of pottery
was recovered from the fill of one. The ditches may represent earlier field
boundaries but they do not appear to be related to any significant levels of
activity within the area covered by the evaluation.
