Abstract

Oxford Archaeology East carried out archaeological works in advance of the construction of a new rising main, which now links the Kings Reach development to the existing treatment works. This work resulted in the discovery of a single middle Iron Age pit, along with a medieval quarry pit and several post-medieval ditches and trackways. The work also showed that the new pipe would not have an adverse impact on the known Bronze Age barrow, located within the existing treatment works.
