During June 2017 Oxford Archaeology South undertook an eight trench
evaluation for CgMs on behalf of Crest Nicholson South West on land at
Waterwells, Quedgeley, Gloucestershire which is, at this time at pre-
Application stage and being considered for residential development. Previous
investigations within the surrounding area had indicated a moderate potential

geophysical survey revealed no identifiable anomalies as Prehistoric or Roman
features within the Site boundary. Some geophysical anomalies indicating

The evaluation revealed no evidence for archaeological features and no
archaeological artefacts were recovered. The anomalies identified by the
geophysical survey were shown to be caused by variations in the natural
The evaluation indicates this Site is of low archaeological potential.
