Abstract:
An archaeological reconnaissance survey was conducted by CFA Archaeology in January 2009 within the grounds of the Whitehall House Estate. Observations from a previous site visit had suggested the presence of medieval broad rig-and-furrow cultivation. The reconnaissance survey found two areas of probable rig-and-furrow cultivation. Area 1 contained several cultivation furrows orientated north-south with accompanying earth banks. Spaced 7m from crest to crest, the banks survived to a maximum height of 0.5m by 4.4m in width. Area 2 contained 4 strips of rig-and-furrow cultivation, orientated ENE-WNW and spaced 7m (crest-to-crest). The accompanying earthworks survived to a maximum height of 0.3m by 4m in width, up to c. 60m in length whereupon the state of preservation became poor in all extents. The survey also identified a post-medieval field boundary, comprising of a ditch with fragmentary stone reveting to the north of area 1, and an east-west orientated linear feature which may represent a silted drainage channel or ditch. Previous interpretations of this feature have suggested this may also be a trackway. No other archaeological features were found.
