The property lay in close proximity to recorded ecclesiastical remains. Assessment in the form of test-trenches was requested as a planning condition for a dwelling-house and garage. Test-trenches to assess the presence of archaeological material were commensurate with the locations of the foundations of both the house and garage. Additional trenches were dug within the area of the proposed well bore, on the line of the driveway and also for the sewer line. Seventeen trenches were opened. There were no indications of archaeological material within the designated areas.
