This study is designed to assess the archaeological potential of an area of 19.7 hectares of pasture land to the north-west of Newton Longville (SP 836 318). Within the subject site is surviving Ridge and Furrow of local importance. There are known to have been two pre-18th century structures within the subject site with a public house - the Fox and Goose - recorded at the side of Whaddon High Way on the 1779 parish map. By the time of the 1841 Enclosure Map the Fox and Goose had been demolished and the course of the road had been realigned to the south of the High Way. Any remains of the Fox and Goose may not survive, as the later Victorian Grange Farm appears to have been built over the same site, although parts of the High Way survive.
There are no other archaeological sites or artefacts known within the development area. The aerial photographs do not show any cropmarks on the site although this may be due to the natural clay masking any features. Romano-British settlement remains and artefacts have been recorded between 100m to more than 400m to the north-west, north and north-east of the subject site.
