Introduction

Headlands, Downton, Wiltshire (OASIS id: wessexar1-77860)

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Midsummer Homes Ltd to undertake an archaeological evaluation in advance of development on land at Headlands, Downton, Wiltshire, centred on NGR 417113, 121285. The field evaluation was undertaken prior to the submission of a planning application to Wiltshire Council for the construction of 14 houses on the site. The evaluation comprised the excavation of two 10m x 1.5m trenches positioned over the footprint of the proposed buildings. No archaeological features or deposits were recorded within the trenches and the results have confirmed that the western half of the proposed development area contains very little potential for archaeological remains to be present.
