Abstract

The area being considered for development, covers an area of approximately 3.68 hectares (TF 4535 0865), and lies to the east of the canalised course of the River Nene. The site lies in an area of potentially rich archaeological remains. There are prehistoric and Roman remains in the vicinity but nothing is known from the site itself. The site appears to have been agricultural or horticultural over the last two centuries. Apart from Selwyn Farm on South Brink and a house in the north-western part of the area there does not appear to have been any development during the past century and recently it has been under grass. To the north of the site there has been housing development and to the east a superstore has been built in recent years. The evidence of past activity in the area and the lack of recent development on the site implies a high potential for preservation of any remains within the development area.
