Two Hedges Road, Woodmancote, Gloucestershire Trial Trench Evaluation (oxfordar1-291216)

Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Cavendish Homes Limited (client) through SF Planning Limited (planning consultant) to undertake a trial trench evaluation ahead of planning submissions for a proposed residential development of a site off Two Hedges Road, Woodmancote, Gloucestershire.

Sixteen trenches were excavated, some of which were positioned to investigate linear anomalies recorded by a geophysical magnetometer survey that preceded this evaluation. No significant archaeological remains were encountered in the evaluation.

The trenches revealed a field boundary ditch extending from west to east across the southern part of the site. This boundary is recorded on the Tithe Map of 1839. Ridge and furrow cultivation earthworks are extant over the site differing slightly in layout to either side of the ditch. The boundary ditch did not produce any useful dating evidence. Traces of a former shallow watercourse were also present alongside the ditch boundary.

The only other archaeological features or remains comprised a single undated ditch and small pit or ditch terminal dated to the 18th century.
