Abstract

In September 2005, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Manor Farm, Buckingham (NGR: SP 699 349. The work was commissioned by CgMs Consulting on behalf of Bellway Homes and Taylor Woodrow Developments Ltd in advance of a potential planning application for development of the land. The watching brief revealed soils typical of modern agricultural practises, overlying natural deposits. Post-medieval ditches possibly representing the western 16th century boundary were observed. Two other ditches representing the remains of ridge and furrow were seen in test pits in the south west and north west corners of the site. A modern stone foundation or drain and an area of hard standing were revealed at the northern end of the site.
