Full Description

Linear features were found in three out of 12 evaluation trenches excavated in 2017. 'Trench 5 contained two parallel ditches on a northwest - southeast alignment. Trench 6 contained one ditch on an east - west alignment. Trench 12 contained one ditch on an east - west alignment. No dating evidence was recovered from any of these features. However, historic mapping suggests these features may be post medieval in date. The ditch within Trench 12 corresponds with a boundary ditch on the 1885 OS map of the site. The ditches within Trench 5 run parallel with a boundary ditch on the same map and may represent shallow drainage ditches within the field system. The ditch within Trench 6 runs parallel with Macclesfield Road to the north and at 90 degrees to a field boundary to the west on the 1885 OS map. This again may form a drainage ditch within the post medieval field system.' (1)
