Abstract/Summary

Documentary soruces showed that Aston Hill had a history of gypsum and marl extraction dating from at least the 18th c. AD. Cropmarks of unknown date survive at Aston Hill. Field survey showed the remains of ridge and furrow of pre-enclosure date existing over most of the Aston Hill site. At Hicknen's Bridge a number of palaeo-channels were located. Linear cropmarks to the north-east of Hicken's Bridge may extend south into the proposed development area.
