Introduction

Red Hone Cottage, Urchfont, Wiltshire (OASIS ID: wessexar1-111988)

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Positive Planning, on behalf of Paul Clark, to undertake an archaeological field evaluation ahead of development at Red Hone Cottage, Urchfont, Wiltshire, located at National Grid Reference (NGR) 404183, 156957. The Assistant County Archaeologist at Wiltshire Council advised that an archaeological evaluation was required ahead of the determination of the application to provide further information on the archaeological potential of the Site. Two trenches positioned within the footprint of the proposed garage and the house were machine excavated under archaeological supervision. Trench 1 measured 3m x 1.8m and Trench 2 measured 6m x 1.8m, providing an 8% sample of the proposed development area. The stratigraphic sequence was broadly consistent in each trench and comprised a well developed garden soil which overlay a silty clay subsoil. Natural greensand was recorded in each trench at a depth of between 0.60 - 0.78m below ground level. No archaeological features were identified within either trench. The fieldwork was carried out on 12th October 2011.
