NH 517 561 (centre) Prior to an archaeological evaluation of the site of a proposed landfill at Tollie, a cultural heritage desk-based assessment and walkover survey of the site was carried out by Entec Ltd.
This survey identified 17 features of possible archaeological significance. Six of these were targeted for further field evaluation. During the evaluation, 40 trenches were excavated totalling an area of 4500 square metres. Three small and one larger pit were uncovered in the trenches. The larger pit produced several sherds of modern pottery and is most likely associated with a former farm steading nearby, removed around 1960. the three smaller pits did not contain any artefacts and are of uncertain date and function. Four pieces of struck flint were recovered from the ploughsoil.
