In November 2021 Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by the RPS Group
on behalf of Barratt & David Wilson Homes North Midlands to undertake a
trial-trench evaluation at a proposed residential development on Land off
Blidworth Lane, Rainworth, Nottinghamshire. The fieldwork was undertaken
over the course of two weeks and consisted of 33 trenches across a c 10.25ha
site, representing a 3% sample of the proposed development area. The
trenches were arranged to provide good coverage of the area and identify a
possible medieval trackway identified on the geophysical survey.
No significant archaeological remains were identified during the evaluation,
and little was found of the remains of the potential medieval trackway. Some
undated boundary ditches were identified within the trenches; however,
these were found to correspond with historical field boundaries. Other
features that were investigated as part of the evaluation included natural
variations in the geology, plough scars and two modern pits.
