Watching brief activities revealed a line of broken rocks identified as a possible former culvert. A damaged and collapsed ceramic pipe was found, possibly installed to replace the culvert at a later date. A spread of broken stone and rubble was observed, probably a trackway put down as a levelling-up deposit for farmers to cross the marshy area. (1)
