Gradiometer Survey

Introduction

A detailed magnetometer survey using a Geoscan FM36 fluxgate gradiometer was carried out over a 3.64ha area. The gradiometer survey identified linear anomalies representing a possible field system with enclosures, areas of magnetic enhancement, which may indicate quarrying activity, two major orientations of ridge and furrow and two linear anomalies which may indicate the presence of a Roman road. A high pressure gas pipe and a number of isolated dipolar anomalies, "iron spikes", caused by modern ferrous contamination, could also be observed.
