Land off Church Lane, Normanton, West Yorkshire.

Additional Gradiometer Survey

1. Summary

To determine the presence and extent of any sub-surface archaeological remains within the survey area and to ascertain whether a feature identified in an earlier survey continued into, and was detectable under, an adjoining golf course.

A detailed magnetometer survey using a Geoscan FM36 fluxgate gradiometer was carried out over an area of 5 hectares east of Church Lane, Normanton.

Results & Conclusions
Very strong responses from ridge and furrow ploughing were observed in the east of the survey area, together with anomalies thought to be caused by recent land drainage.

The anomaly identified in an earlier survey was not observed continuing into the golf course. No other archaeological anomalies were identified.
