Monitoring took place on the proposed site of a bungalow to the south-west of a ringfort at Shurock, Moate. The treatment system was relocated, as it would fall within the 20m buffer zone surrounding the monument. Foundation trenches were opened, revealing the presence of north-east/south-west-oriented plough-furrows, but nothing of archaeological significance was noted.
