Abstract

Oxford archaeological Unit (OAU) carried out a watching brief during the break-up and removal of the concrete courtyard area which formed the main entrance to Cogges Manor Farm museum, Witney, Oxon (SP 3626 0964). The deposition of the new concrete surface was also monitored. Cogges Manor Farm is a scheduled Ancient Monument and the watching brief was required in accordance with PPG16 due to the presence of known archaeological interest within the immediate vicinity of the development. The site lies on cornbrash at a height of c80mOD. The removal of the courtyard revealed in plan an uneven dump of hardcore, from which was retrieved what appears to be an iron gate latch of undetermined date. This was, however, found in close proximity to several pieces pf modern brickwork. No archaeology was seen.
