Abstract

In August 2013 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a desktop assessment to examine the available historical and archaeological resources relating to the Milton Keynes section of the proposed Old Stratford to Kiln Farm route of a reinforcement water main. The work was commissioned by BSP Associates on behalf of Anglian Water. The site has a high level of archaeological potential. The most likely date of any remains is either Roman or medieval with a moderate level of potential for prehistoric remains. Preserved ridge and furrow cultivation survives along the proposed pipe route and this will be impacted by the construction works associated with the pipeline. Remains from other periods should not be ruled out as undated cropmarks are present to the north east of the site and a Saxon origin to Manor Farm are documented to the south. Extensive remains have been uncovered on the western expansion of Milton Keynes by Gallaghers estates and the pipeline runs along the northern edge of this development. The site has been undeveloped agricultural land from at least the medieval period to the present day. If remains of any date exist on the site the chance or degree of survival should be high.
