During October 2017 Oxford Archaeology undertook a trial trench evaluation
at Reading Road and Wallingford Road, Wallingford. The evaluation was
undertaken in advance of the construction of a new retirement home.
The evaluation revealed two ditches, which were undated. Trench 1 contained
a shallow-sided north-east to south-west orientated ditch and Trench 5
contained a substantial north to south-orientated ditch. No finds or
archaeologically rich fills were identified. Eventhough the ditches were
undated, they may potentially relate to prehistoric activity in the wider area
which includes numerous examples of prehistoric ditches, enclosures and
trackways. Based on the results of the evaluation the site is believed to have
low archaeological potential.
