In April 2019 Oxford Archaeology carried out a trial trench evaluation as part
of wetland regeneration scheme at Eythrope Meadows, Waddesdon Estate,
Buckinghamshire on behalf of the River Thame Conservation Trust. The site is
situated on the floodplain of the River Thame directly adjacent to and within
the setting of a medieval moat site known as ‘moated site 650m south of
Beachendon Farm’ (NHLE: 1018671).
Four trenches were excavated within the footprints of the proposed fish ponds
and management channels, but only uncovered a single undated ditch,
possibly modern. Test pits dug at either end of each trench to investigate the
underlying floodplain sequences, revealed a sterile alluvium sequence
extending below the maximum impact depth but encountered no
archaeological remains. The archaeological potential of the site is therefore
considered to be low.
