An extension to a quarry was the subject of an assessment. A total of 26 test-trenches were excavated at this location. Previous geophysical survey had highlighted a number of areas of archaeological potential and the quarry layout was altered to preserve some features in situ. A number of features were identified during the assessment and included a curved ditch containing charcoal and animal bone. The features were located beneath a proposed berm delimiting the site’s southern boundary. It was agreed with the NMS to preserve these features in situ beneath the berm.
