Introduction

13-51 Eskdale Road and 47-63 Station Road, Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: heritage1-257684)

In order to investigate the archaeological potential of a proposed residential development site on land to the r/o 13-51 Eskdale Road and 47-63 Station Road, Stoke Mandeville, Bucks. the Heritage Network was commissioned to undertake field evaluation of the site by trial trenching.

Ten trenches were located in three defined areas, which were sited to avoid nesting birds. Each trench measured 15m in length and between 1.80m and 2m in width. No features, deposits or finds of archaeological significance were encountered. A number of modern field drains were revealed in Trenches 4 and 7 and a modern demolition spread, presumably relating to an outbuilding such as a shed, was exposed in Trench 3.

One abraded fragment of late post-medieval peg tile was recovered during the sampling of the topsoil. This was discarded on site. No other finds were encountered during the sampling of the top and subsoils. On the basis of the results of the evaluation, the risk that the proposed development might have a negative impact on remains of archaeological significance may be considered to be Low for all periods.
