Abstract:
Springfield Farm Ltd is proposing to extend Springfield Quarry to the south. The information gained during the non-intrusive evaluation works led to the production of a brief, issued by Buckinghamshire County Council's, Archaeological Officer (BCC's AO) for a programme of trial trenching, the purpose of which was to establish the character and extent of any significant archaeological deposits. The study area is located towards the southern edge of Beaconsfield parish. The c.17ha study area, is situated between Dipple Wood to the east and Over's Farm and Lillyfee Farm to the west at a height of c.100m OD. The evaluation has revealed that the central part of the development area contains significant archaeological remains. Trial trenching has demonstrated that a series of linear anomalies that were previously identified through geophysical survey are ditches, some of which contain pottery of late Bronze Age/ early Iron Age date. The remains are likely to represent part of a late Bronze Age/early Iron Age system of field boundaries or settlement enclosures. No conclusive evidence for settlement was found within the study area. However, pottery from the site along with other possible occupation debris suggests such activity within the vicinity. Some ditches in the central part of the study area, based on position and orientation, have been interpreted as part of field boundaries that were still extant in the 18th century. However, in the absence of more conclusive dating evidence it is possible that these features are also late Bronze Age or Iron Age. No significant archaeological remains were found in the southern or eastern parts of the study area.
