Abstract:
In June 2011 a geophysical survey was carried out in advance of proposed development at Carlton Park, Narborough, Leicestershire (NGR SP53572 98320) by Souterrain Archaeological Services Limited. The survey was commissioned by MetroMOLA, on behalf of HurleyPalmerFlatt, for Santander PLC. The survey, which employed the technique of fluxgate gradiometer focussed on two areas, known as Sites A and B. Site A is an undeveloped area of open grassland on a gentle southward slope; Site B is a small, largely enclosed and fairly flat field set to grass, which in the 20th century was converted to a playing field with a cricket pitch. The aim of the survey was to identify the potential of buried archaeological remains that would be affected by the proposed development. At Site A, the survey revealed that brick rubble has been spread over the upper part of the slope; the material presumably derived from the demolition of a 20th century asylum/hospital, which stood nearby. The widespread magnetic 'noise' created by this rubble spread significantly hinders archaeological 'visibility' in this area. Three linear anomalies were identified, though these cannot be positively attributed to archaeology without invasive investigation. The survey of Site B revealed the probable traces of former medieval to early post medieval agricultural furrows (i.e. from ridge and furrow farming methods) and a possible field ditch, a series of ceramic field drains associated with post medieval to early modern agricultural land improvement, and the remains of a 20th century cricket pitch with its associated drainage
