The archaeological investigations identified evidence for Roman, medieval, post-medieval and modern occupation. The archaeological evidence for Roman occupation comprised a ditch, gully and a posthole sealed below a layer which may have represented make up or a former agricultural soil. The medieval occupation was characterised by a layer of clay make up/agricultural soil. A series of linear ditches signified post-medieval or later occupation at the site, which was in turn sealed by layers of recent made up ground.
