PROJECT DETAILS Moat site: Magnetic survey over this area revealed several anomalies of archaeological potential, however, no clear pattern emerged and any interpretation is cautious. The Paddock: Resistance survey suggested that landscaping activities may have disturbed the majority of this area and little of archaeological potential was noted. Tithe Barn: Anomalies of high resistance in this area are likely to be due to landscaping. North of Orchard: The partial footprint of a Tudor mansion was located using resistance survey together with evidence of a courtyard and / or gardens and a potential road leading to the building. Orchard: A large ditch was identified as low resistance in the data; high resistance anomalies may also be of archaeological interest, however, trees and vegetation may also account for these responses. Churchyard: Anomalies of archaeological potential have been noted but any interpretation is inconclusive. Millennium Field: Low resistance anomalies were shown on excavation to be an Anglo-Saxon ditch. Several magnetic anomalies of archaeological potential lie within this area but most of the anomalies correspond to topographical changes.
