In January 2020, Oxford Archaeology (OA) North was commissioned by RPS UK and Ireland Ltd to conduct and supervise a metal detecting survey in conjunction with the Crewe and Nantwich Metal Detecting Society at the site
of Dunkirk Way, Backford Cross, Cheshire. The main aim of the survey was to evaluate the archaeological potential of the site, by establishing from the finds retrieved if significant below‐ground archaeological deposits were likely to be preserved. This was necessary due to the proximity of the site to a nearby moated site of probable medieval origin. The survey was conducted during January 2020 and recovered a total of seventy objects, all of which were found to be post‐medieval in origin and relatively ubiquitous in nature.
