Fieldwalking recovered pieces of Roman, medieval, post medieval pottery and tile. Later metal detecting found an Iron Age copper alloy harness fitting decorated with enamel, Roman, medieval and post medieval coins and a post medieval jetton. Pieces of iron smelting waste were also found. This has been interpreted as part of an area of Roman settlement.
