The site is located on the eastern bank of the River Bann, north of Mountsandal Road to the south of Coleraine town. Its proximity to known archaeological sites necessitated the implementation of a scheme of trial-trenching followed by monitoring of topsoil-stripping. A small number of randomly spaced features were uncovered from which a small quantity of struck flint was recovered.
