This site was included in a desk-based assessment carried out in November 2007 in advance of water main renewal works. A precautionary site visit was recommended to view the open trench. <3> The trench was dug and backfilled without the presence of an archaeologist, however it was diverted to the opposite side of the road to avoid damage to the lime kiln. <4>
This site was visited during a walkover survey in March and April 2011. See the linked event (EHG3560) to download the survey report. <5><6>
