Land West of Long Buckby Northamptonshire

Hughes, Vix Land West of Long Buckby Northamptonshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Oxford Archaeology, was commissioned by Western Power Distribution to undertake archaeological recording and reporting upon the excavation of a new trench to accommodate electricity cables within fields that lie between Murcott and Long Buckby, Northamptonshire (SP 62140 67890 to SP 62154 68124). The fieldwork was completed in September 2014. Within the southern field six modern and historic field drains were recorded providing drainage to the low lying ground. Of these, one was a stone-constructed drain which, along with a ceramic drain, were cut into the base of an infilled ditchlike feature. Both the former ditch and drains were overlain by a clay and rubble deposit levelling the ground surface. No artefacts were present in association with the ditch and stone drain. A further deposit of redeposited clay and rubble was also recorded levelling a previous shallow hollow north of the stone drain and ditch. Artefacts recovered from the topsoil and this levelling deposit all dated from the 19th and 20th centuries.
