Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief, by Geoff Potter of Compass Archaeology, monitored the excavation of six machine dug geotechnical trial pits. The recorded deposits were broadly comparable across the site and comprised 19th century and later made ground overlying an alluvial sequence. The alluvial sequence was made up of three layers, which were clean silt, over mixed silt and organic material, which in turn overlay peat. Although there were no artefacts or other remains, the principal peat deposits may relate to a single prehistoric marine regression, whilst the overlying sterile silt reflects rising sea levels and flooding into the post-medieval period. The alluvial sequence was 2.15 to 3 metres thick and sealed natural river terrace sands and gravels.
