This site was found during testing close to the site of the former Grange Lodge at the highest point of land within a new town development at Grange, Baldoyle (No. 446 above, 03E1535), and was characterised by sixteen linear features. The features were filled with seashells and animal bone fragments in a dark silty clay matrix. The few finds noted indicate an 18th/19th-century date and the site has been interpreted as drainage activity.
