Watford Gap Renewable Energy Park Northamptonshire

Score, David Watford Gap Renewable Energy Park Northamptonshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Oxford Archaeology have undertaken a twenty five trench evaluation of land at Watford Gap in advance of the submission of a planning application. Seven archaeological features were revealed (including a single ditch recorded in both Trenches 16 and 17). Of these 4 were clearly related as part of a cultivation system in Trench 8. Two further ditches were recorded in Trenches 10 and 19. Two of the ditches are positively dated and interpreted as post medieval field boundaries and while a small quantity of abraded probably Roman pottery was recovered from one of the other features they may be medieval or post medieval in origin. Evidence for ridge and furrow cultivation was also recorded in the southern and eastern areas of the site.
