Physical Evidence


A small ditch was recorded during archaeological evaluation at North Hill in 2012 by TWM. The ditch is believed to be prehistoric in date due to a small flint blade recovered from the fill and the favourable location for settlement in this area of elevated ground. The ditch was orientated north-south and measured a maximum of 0.99m x 0.45m in depth becoming shallower and narrower at the northern end of the excavated segment. In profile its western side was very steep while its opposing eastern side was moderately sloped.
