In March 2020 Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Cherwell
District Council to undertake a trial trench evaluation of the site of a proposed
new residential development at Middleton Stoney, Oxfordshire. The
evaluation comprised two trenches located within the footprint of the
proposed development.
The evaluation recorded a buried soil horizon, two pits and a well structure.
One of the pits produced a small assemblage of pottery representing at least
six medieval vessels. The second pit, the buried soil and the well were not
dated, although their character is indicative of a medieval date. The evaluation
established that the upper structure of the well had been levelled to a depth
of c. 1m below present ground level. A 20th century deposit, c. 0.8m in depth,
recorded in both trenches indicated that the area had been landscaped
relatively recently, and is likely to be contemporary with the construction of
nearby houses.
