Abstract:
Archaeological Surveys Ltd was commissioned by HPH Ltd to undertake a magnetometer survey of an area of land at Hawkeridge Farm near Westbury, Wiltshire. The site has been outlined for the installation of solar arrays within the proposed Hawkeridge Solar Park. The survey forms part of an archaeological assessment of the site prior to lodging a planning application with the local authority. The geophysical survey was conducted over 13ha and located a number of anomalies of archaeological potential within the northern part of the site. Positive linear, discrete and rectilinear anomalies are possibly associated with zones of magnetic debris and may correspond to spreads of Medieval and Post-Medieval pottery seen at the time of survey. It is possible that these anomalies relate to former settlement sites/structures given the nature of the cultural material. The route of a former droveway, still used as a public footpath across the site, was defined by two positive linear anomalies relating to former field boundaries and a zone of magnetic debris, possibly indicating material used in ground consolidation. The zone appears to correlate with a linear spread of limestone fragments, many of which appeared burnt. The site contains a number of linear anomalies of uncertain origin. It is likely that many relate to former agricultural activity and infilled field boundary ditches.
