Abstract

Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by the National Trust to undertake an archaeological watching brief during the excavation of a cable trench to the east of the main house at Basildon Park, Berkshire. The trenching did not go deep enough to reveal the natural geology or any archaeology for much of its length. However, in areas where the natural was revealed two undated ditches were identified. Running along the east edge of a known lynchet were the remains of a wall and intentionally backfilled ditch containing 18th-19th century brick, cutting through the subsoil.
