Land at Wick Lane Norton Fitzwarren Somerset

Matthews, Bryan Land at Wick Lane Norton Fitzwarren Somerset. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




During January 2006, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at land adjacent to Wick lane, Norton Fitzwarren, Somerset, on behalf of Hyder Consulting (UK) Ltd. The evaluation revealed an area of medieval settlement remains, consisting of pits and ditches which produced pottery of 12th -13th century date along with evidence for crop processing and metalworking. A large, undated feature close by may have been a borrow pit of the same period. To the north of this settlement activity, two phases of shallow undated boundary or drainage ditches were recorded in the floodplain of the Norton Brook
