A watching brief for English Heritage was maintained by the OAU over the installation of services and the erection of farm buildings during the period from September 1989 to October 1990.
Trenches were only excavated to the minimum depth needed.
Next to nothing was revealed during the erection of the farm
buildings but the service trench from the new farmyard to Moreton Lane revealed deposits of Romano-British domestic refuse and N-S ditches. The ditches have subsequently been confirmed by aerial photography.
Several ditch lines continued into the field to the N as slight earthworks. The earthworks in this field were partially levelled and infilled with brought-in material by the previous land-owner.
