In late July 2018 Oxford Archaeology undertook a trial trench evaluation at
Box Farm, Castle Street, Marsh Gibbon, Buckinghamshire. The work was
undertaken prior to the construction of a proposed new bungalow. The site is
located within the conservation area of the historical village and to the rear of
a Grade II listed 17th-century farm house and barn, and had the potential to
contain medieval and post-medieval remains.
The evaluation consisted of single trench excavated within the footprint of the
proposed new building. The trench revealed a general sequence of mixed
topsoil and subsoil deposits sealing natural geology. A modern backfilled
feature, possible a former pond, was identified in the northern end of the
The evaluation did not identify any archaeological remains and found signs of
modern disturbance. Based on the results of the evaluation the site is
considered to have negligible archaeological potential.
