Introduction

Victor Barns, Northampton Road, Brixworth, Northamptonshire (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-274297)

Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological trial trench evaluation of land at Victor Barns off Northampton Road, Brixworth, Northamptonshire between 12th-15th December 2017. The site is centred on NGR SP 7667 6911.

A total of 13 trial trenches were excavated revealing a single linear ditch aligned NW-SE and three or four probable quarries. The upper fills of the quarries produced a small range of artefacts dating from the 19th century. No datable material was encountered within the ditch although this is aligned parallel to one shown on the 1st edition OS map. It is most likely that the ditch was a former boundary related to the historic field arrangement.

The evaluation did not produce any evidence for activity at the site predating the post-medieval period.
