Abstract:
A magnetometer survey was commissioned by WSP Environment and Energy Ltd, to be carried out over a 7.1ha area of land at Ashton Vale, Bristol, ahead of a potential development of the new Bristol City Football Club stadium, residential dwellings and retail units. An initial trial of detailed magnetometry proved that the technique was effective and that the soils were conducive to forming magnetic enhancement. A subsequent survey of all accessible areas located a number of geophysical anomalies that may relate to ditch-like or pit-like features. However, it has not been possible to ascertain the origin of many of these anomalies and although they may have been caused by anthropogenic activity, it is possible that some may be a response to naturally magnetically enhanced soils. Several linear anomalies have been located that appear to be associated with former field boundaries visible on mapping between 1821 and 1938. Several other linear anomalies also relate to agricultural features, possibly associated with improving land drainage. A zone of magnetic disturbance was located in areas adjacent to landfill, forming the northern part of the site, suggesting a high proportion of buried ferrous material. Zones of magnetic debris were frequently encountered and probably relate to ferrous material derived from nearby industrial sites.
