Introduction

Fieldwalking was undertaken over an area of 6ha at land adjacent to Stockings Farm, Arnold, Nottinghamshire. The fieldwalking was commissioned by John Samuels Archaeological Consultants in advance of a proposed residential development. The fieldwalking produced an assemblage of largely 18th/19th century ceramics, together with an 18th century coin and a single worked flint.

The general scatter of material consisted of modern debris and fragments of modern glass which could be seen consistently over the whole site. Some fragments of modern ceramic were also observed but not collected. There were no significant clusters of artefacts although there seemed to be a tendency for finds toward the higher ground at the centre of the field, with less finds on the lower lying ground and the boundaries of the site.
