Fieldwalking followed by a watching brief on top-soil stripping and trench excavation along the route of the rising main revealed a concentration of linear features centred at TL 2778 2027. These were found to date to the Middle Iron Age and 3rd to 4th centuries AD. Close to this area a Roman stone coffin was discovered in the 19th century. The rest of the route produced occasional prehistoric flints and sherds of Medieval and later pottery but no other sites or features.
