Introduction

Roborough Solar PV Array, Roborough, Devon. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-316757)

In January 2017, Cotswold Archaeology (CA) carried out an archaeological evaluation at the proposed site of Roborough Solar PV Array, Devon (centred on NGR: SX 4938 6192). The evaluation was undertaken at the request of Arcus Consultancy Services Ltd on behalf of Verto Energy Ltd and Soventix GmbHm.

The fieldwork comprised the excavation of 34 trenches. All trenches were 20m long and 2m wide. T33 was moved from the location specified in the WSI on order to avoid an area of existing trees and vegetation in the eastern end of the site. The orientation of T27 was adjusted to avoid a steeply sloping area.

Archaeological features were identified in T8, T11, T32 and T33 only. All of these features were undated and are of uncertain function, although the ditches may represent minor drainage and/or boundary features.
