A building survey and watching brief took place in connection with the erection of a new agricultural building which would involve the destruction of part of a fank wall and the removal of an area of topsoil. Work had started before the archaeologists arrived on site and the wall which was to be surveyed had already been dismantled. The remainder of the fank was subsequently planned and photographed. A watching brief took place during the stripping of topsoil over an area of approximately 600 square metres. No significant archaeological features were identified, but several sherds of non-diganostic 18th and 19th century ceramics were recovered together with a possible coarse stone tool. <1><2>
