Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation on the site of a
proposed residential development at St Frideswide’s Farm, Cutteslowe,
Oxford in November 2020. The fieldwork was commissioned by Tetra Tech on
behalf of Croudace Homes in advance of a planning application.
A geophysical survey of the 3.6ha site carried out prior to the works starting
detected a small number of geophysical anomalies of possible archaeological
A total of 11 trenches were excavated across the site, the majority of which
targeted the geophysical anomalies previously identified. Of these 11
trenches, one contained a potential archaeological feature and the majority
of anomalies were identified as natural features and remnants of a ridge and
furrow system. A good correlation between the results of the geophysical
survey and archaeological evaluation was demonstrated.
The single feature, identified within Trench 3 correlated with a north-east to
south-west aligned linear geophysical anomaly. The feature was very shallow
and contained no dateable material and may relate to a former trackway to
nearby farm buildings.
