Abstract:
Between 28th and 30th August 2012, Wardell Armstrong Archaeology Ltd (WAA), undertook a geophysical survey of land at Gara Barton in the South Hams district of Devon, at the request of Wardell Armstrong LLP. This work was undertaken on behalf of their client Lightsource Renewable Energy Ltd, in order to provide information in support of a planning application for a proposed new solar development at the site. The site lies within an area of significant archaeological potential, which includes a number of well-preserved prehistoric earthworks.Geomagnetic survey was undertaken over c.4.68ha in total, to cover the area of the proposed solar farm development. The survey detected a possible early field boundary at the southwest corner of the site, which is not depicted on historic maps of the site, and may therefore be medieval or post-medieval in date. The remains of possible ridge and furrow cultivation of potential medieval or post-medieval date has also been detected across the majority of the survey area. The survey also detected a number of modern features including a service pipe, and possible land drains. The survey also detected a modern field boundary, which has since been removed to create a single larger field
