On the 4th and 5th of October 2018 Oxford Archaeology East monitored the removal of topsoil in advance of the establishment by Anglian Water of a temporary compound at Walsingham Road, Wighton (TF 93494 38342). Approximately 0.20m of plough soil was removed across an area measuring 30m x 30m. No archaeological features were recorded. A systematic metal detecting survey carried out across the area during the strip produced 104 metallic targets all attributed to casual losses or items discarded as rubbish. All finds apart from two were of a post medieval date. During the metal detecting survey, a single Neolithic implement was also found in the upper plough soil.
