Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by EDP on behalf of L&Q Estates to
undertake a trial trench evaluation at the site of a proposed drainage outfall.
The site comprises two land parcels, one to the north and one to the south of
Wykham Lane.
A geophysical survey of the site identified a number of possible archaeological
features across the site, including two NW-SE trends, a number of amorphous
features and truncated ridge and furrow. However, no archaeological features
were recorded within the site during the evaluation. The anomalies recorded
by the geophysical survey may have been caused by variations in the natural
A layer of peat was recorded and sampled in the southern part of the site. This
suggests that the southern part of the site was previously waterlogged, and it
may indicate the former course of a stream which is located just south-east of
the site.
