Introduction

Prospect Farm, Drayton Parslow, Buckinghamshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: borderar1-219105)

Border Archaeology Ltd (BA) was instructed by Raw Energy on behalf of Underblue Ltd to carry out a programme of Archaeological Field Evaluation with regard to a proposed solar farm development on land northeast of Prospect Farm Highway Drayton Parslow Buckinghamshire.

Current land use is as pastoral farmland, although the field has been ploughed in modern times. Probable medieval ridge-and-furrow cultivation features were encountered in all of the trenching and these features are also shown on aerial photographic records of the area, although they were not clearly visible at ground level.

Of the 14 trenches opened, 10 contained no archaeological deposits, finds or features. A drainage ditch was revealed and excavated in Trench 3 and Trench 7, with an additional drainage ditch or possible boundary feature and pit recorded in Trench 13. No finds were found in association with any of these features.

The lack of occupation material encountered within or associated with the features suggests all were of agricultural origin.
