Geophysical survey undertaken as part of an archaeological evaluation of land at the proposed Barby Pools Marina site in Northamptonshire and Warwickshire. This was prepared by Cotswold Archaeology (Project 3174, 18 March 2011). The site has also been the subject of detailed Cultural Heritage Assessment by Cotswold Archaeology (Report 11010; January 2011). The survey has responded to much of the visible ridge and furrow, but has also detected an extensive and previously unknown complex of mainly rectilinear ditched enclosures. A number of the enclosures contain internal features suggesting this is a settlement site, perhaps of largely Roman date.

Geophysical survey which forms part of an archaeological evaluation of a proposed quarry site near Mepal, Cambridgeshire. The survey has produced a number of clearly defined findings, but they appear to be mainly of natural or recent origin. The survey results otherwise are consistent with the cropmark plan, which shows no recorded features within the survey area.

This geophysical survey was carried out to test for evidence of archaeological features or remains in the vicinity of a proposed new road which is to provide access to the Branton Lane Quarry at Aldridge near Walsall. The survey has not detected any concentrations of findings which would suggest the presence of settlement or occupation remains within or associated with the cropmark enclosure. The weak (but identifiable) response to the cropmark enclosure could mean that the earthworks have been eroded since the aerial photograph was taken.

This geophysical survey was undertaken as part of an archaeological evaluation of the site of a proposed extension to the existing Cadeby Quarry. The survey has detected various subsurface features and disturbances including land drains and cultivation effects, but only a small number of findings of potential archaeological relevance. These include a previously unknown but probable large ring ditch, and magnetic anomalies which could indicate the presence of settlement remains within an area of previously recorded earthworks at the south-west of the site.

Two geophysical surveys carried out to test for evidence of archaeological features at the site of a proposed drainage pond to be constructed at Cardington Airfield, Bedfordshire. Both the 2012 and 2014 surveys have detected strong magnetic disturbances probably indicating remains of airfield structures towards the north, west and south of the survey areas, but with only minimal findings of potential archaeological interest.

The purpose of this geophysical survey was to test for evidence of archaeological findings or remains at the site of a proposed solar power development near Tackley, Oxfordshire. The survey has detected dense concentrations of archaeological features in two areas towards the NE and SW of the field. These clearly represent groups of ditched enclosures, some of which contain pits and other features indicating settlement remains.

Findings from two small additional geophysical surveys carried out as part of a continuing programme of archaeological investigations on the route of the proposed Covenham to Boston water pipeline are described in this report. The two alternative re-routes are located immediately to the west of Hundleby in east Lincolnshire, and near to the centre of the 60km route.

This report describes a geophysical survey at the site of a proposed wind turbine wind turbine at Edder Acres Farm, Shotton, County Durham. The proposed development comprises a wind turbine with hard standing and an associated access road. The survey has detected linear markings which could relate to former ridge and furrow cultivation, but there are no other identifiable findings along the access route. Distinct (but perhaps partly eroded) ditch-like linear features are visible within the turbine site. There are also a number of individual magnetic anomalies of a kind which could represent silted pits (as are often seen at ancient settlement sites).

Geophysical survey carried out as part of an archaeological evaluation of a proposed gravel extraction site adjacent to the existing Fairlop Quarry at Aldborough Hatch in the London Borough of Redbridge. The survey has detected a limited number of subsurface features and disturbances, some of which relate to previously identified cropmarks, but not all of which are likely to be of archaeological interest.

The geophysical survey as described in this report was undertaken to test for evidence of any possible archaeological features or remains at the site of the former Headington Cricket Club in Headington, Oxford. The site is currently unused, and has reverted to rough grassland scattered with items of modern debris. The survey has detected a considerable amount of magnetic activity at the site, but has produced only minimal evidence for the possible presence of archaeological features.

This magnetometer survey forms part of an archaeological evaluation of a site which is subject to a planning application for the proposed construction of a drainage pond, and is located to the SE of Gatwick Airport. The magnetic activity to be expected at an ancient iron-working or other industrial site would usually be more varied and extensive than is seen in the survey, where most of the magnetic disturbances are strong and isolated. The generally quiet response from the remainder the site, where only a few small magnetic anomalies of limited and uncertain significance can be identified, does not suggest the presence of any significant concentration of settlement remains.

The geophysical survey described in this report was carried out as part of an archaeological field evaluation of the site of a proposed new reservoir at Chilton near Didcot. The survey has detected linear markings of a kind which could represent insubstantial or isolated ditch-like features. The absence of any other clearly identifiable groups or clusters of magnetic anomalies suggests there are unlikely to be any distinct or well-preserved concentrations of settlement remains within the survey area.

The purpose of this survey was to test for evidence of archaeological remains at the site of Bampton Castle, and particularly for indications of the northern arm of the moat, which is assumed to have surrounded the castle. The survey has confirmed that much of the open ground within and near to the farmyard is heavily disturbed, but has produced findings which are open to at least some limited archaeological interpretation. There is no evidence from the magnetometer survey for a moat in Turf Close, unless it follows or lies outside the existing boundaries. The resistivity findings suggest, but cannot fully confirm, that the survey includes part of the western arm of the moat, and that a channel could extend to the east on the line of the extant ditch. A linear sequence of resistivity anomalies leaves open the possibility that wall footings could survive in the northwest corner of the castle bailey. The survey has not detected any evidence of structural remains to correspond to the reconstruction of the north-eastern corner of the bailey.

This report describes the findings from a geophysical survey which has been undertaken as part of an archaeological field evaluation of the route of the proposed Hannington to Pitsford water pipeline in Northamptonshire. It was expected, given the density of archaeological activity in the surrounding area, that additional findings were likely to be identified along the route, as was found to be the case. The survey has provided clear evidence for the presence of substantial remains of ancient settlement sites at a number of locations towards the western end of the route.

This geophysical survey was undertaken as part of an archaeological field evaluation in advance of a planning application for a proposed solar power development at a site between Norton and Carburton, Nottinghamshire. Cropmarks at the site suggest the presence of traces of a field system of Iron Age or Roman date in the northern part of the development area, but with no evidence for associated settlement remains. Findings from the survey (with the exception of pipes and drains) are limited to a small number of weak and uncertain linear features which do not correlate with the cropmarks. The survey also provides no evidence for the presence of a settlement site, or any other identifiable concentration of archaeological features.

This geophysical survey has been undertaken as part of an archaeological field evaluation of a proposed solar power site in Somerset. The survey has detected various magnetic disturbances, a number of which clearly relate to former field boundaries and drains. There are also strong disturbances on the line of a former ditch or palaeochannel. A few irregular linear markings could perhaps be of archaeological relevance, but the evidence is uncertain. There is also a scatter of small magnetic anomalies, one possible explanation for which could be a spread of industrial debris in one of the fields.

This geophysical survey has been undertaken as part of an archaeological field evaluation of a proposed solar power site in North Somerset. The site is an area of farmland extending across a number of fields. Findings in the southern part of the survey are limited to drains and recent disturbances. Features detected towards the north of the survey include disturbances on the line of a former field boundary, and various weak irregular linear features of uncertain significance. A possible further ditch-like feature is also very weak and not necessarily of any significance.

This report describes the findings from a geophysical survey which was carried out as part of an archaeological field assessment of a site adjacent to the Bell Language School, Cambridge. The site has previously been the subject of an archaeological field evaluation consisting of trial trenching within the area which is now to be surveyed. This was done by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit in 2004, with findings as described in a report (dated January 2005). The survey has detected various subsurface disturbances, some of which are likely to indicate archaeological features, but has not fully detected the findings seen in the 2004 trenching.

This report describes a geophysical survey which has been undertaken as part of an archaeological field evaluation of a proposed housing development site on the eastern edge of Linton, Cambridgeshire. The site is considered (on the basis of cropmarks and previous findings) to be of high archaeological potential, and the survey has produced a number of positive findings. These include linear markings which correspond to a probable former roadway identified in aerial photographs, and enclosures which could be of post-medieval (or earlier) date. There is also a relatively high level of background magnetic activity, much of which is likely to be of natural origin.
