Abstract:
This report presents the results of a geophysical survey carried out by South West Archaeology Ltd. (SWARCH) on land at Hobbacott Lane, Marhamchurch, Cornwall, in advance of the construction of a housing development. The geophysical survey indicates a single linear feature of archaeological origin within the area of the proposed development. Although absent from the cartographic record, the anomaly may represent a drainage ditch and/or a removed field boundary. Additional anomalies were identified to the south and south-west of the proposal site boundary, and they are all similarly orientated contrary to the field-system, perhaps traces of an earlier (Prehistoric/Romano-British) field pattern. However, the archaeological potential of the site is considered low, especially given the extensive plough marks evident in the geophysical survey, which is likely to have severely truncated any archaeological deposits once present on this site. The desk-based assessment does however suggest the potential for an enclosure of unknown date to the immediate east of the site.
