Abstract

Between the 28th April 2004 and 24th June 2004 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Cox’s Meadow, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire (NGR: SO 956 212) The work was commissioned by Jackson Engineering in advance of excavation of a new balancing pond and construction of a concrete flume. The watching brief confirmed the findings of the earlier evaluation, carried out by OA revealing extensive ridge and furrow cultivation, foundation remains of a post-medieval agricultural building and a palaeo-channel of the former River Chelt to the north of the site. No other significant archaeological features were observed.
