Introduction

Land at Crisps Farm, Church Lane, Austrey, Warwickshire: Magnetometer Survey (OASIS ID: archaeol20-331904)

A geophysical survey, comprising detailed magnetometry, was carried out by Archaeological Surveys Ltd at Crisps Farm, to the south of Church Lane in Austrey, North Warwickshire. The results indicate a positive rectilinear anomaly that appears to relate to a former ditch-like feature, possibly an enclosure. It is located immediately west of an extant linear depression within the field, which is likely to relate to a former field boundary ditch. The possible enclosure may extend further west; however, its orientation becomes parallel with former ridge and furrow cultivation and, as a consequence, its continuation cannot be confidently determined. Several other positive linear, curvilinear and discrete anomalies have been located within the site and although they may relate to cut features, they are generally weak, poorly defined or lack a coherent morphology.
