In August 2003, Oxford Archaeology carried out a trenched evaluation of Land at
Shenley Woods, Milton Keynes, on behalf of English Partnerships. This work
followed a programme of geophysical survey.
Generally there was a very low level of archaeological activity across the Study
Area. Two main areas of archaeological interest were identified. A small group of
shallow ditches, pits and a medieval trackway was located to the south of the
medieval moated site at Westbury Farm, and a small group of ditches was found
c.300m to the east of the farm, close to the junction of Childs Way and Chalkdell
All of the features are believed to date from the mid-late 11th to the mid-late 13th
century are understood to represent the periphery of a very localised field system
associated with the medieval settlement of Westbury-by-Shenley.
