During pipe-laying on Matlock Road, at c. SK 38055715, contractors cut through a raft of timbers at a depth of 1.72m. The timbers consisted of large trunks and branches, unshaped but cut to receive pieces at right angles, presumably to create a rectangular framework. Only the edge was observed in a 1m wide trench. The timbers were aligned north-east/south-west across a clay silt hollow, which was probably waterlogged prior to road construction in the late 18th/early 19th century. (1)
