The design of the development included two buildings; the main house to the south and a garage to the north. Observation of main groundworks during the project occurred on 12th December 2016. This involved the monitoring of a controlled strip of the southern building's (house) footprint. This area was stripped of topsoil down to a level reaching natural subsoil. Some areas were subsequently reduced further in order to meet the technical specifications required for the development. Excavations were done with a 1.5m wide toothless ditching bucket fitted to a c. 5 ton tracked excavator. Excavated areas were not tracked over by the machine until the archaeologist had investigated the area. The northern section of the site (garage) retained a large area of hardstanding from its previous foundational use. As a result, the design of the project aims to build upon this hardstanding and does not require any topsoil stripping within the northern section of the site. Between the northern and southern sections was a service trench, the excavation of which was subsequently monitored on 4th October 2017. Much of this service trench was located within the previous hardstanding area but due to the depth of excavation required this was also monitored. In conclusion, no archaeological features, deposits or artefacts of significance were encountered during the monitoring of the development and it is recommended that no further archaeological investigation of the development site is required.
