Moor Lane, Aston-on-Trent, Derby, Derbyshire (OASIS ID: archaeol27-303337)

An archaeological evaluation, consisting of seven trial trenches, was under taken on behalf of Cameron Homes prior to the construction of a new housing development along Moor Lane. Three sections of undated curvilinear gully were found on part of the site which seem likely to belong to a single annular ditch of prehistoric date. The absence of finds from the ditch may indicate a sepulchro-ritual monument rather than a domestic site.

Linear features of post-medieval date were recorded which are likely to relate to agriculture use of the site.

Archaeological excavation would be required to mitigate the impact of the development on the potential prehistoric archaeological remains.
