Pre-development test trenching was carried out in response to an archaeological planning condition imposed upon grant of planning approval for a housing development located at the rear of 90 Churchill Road, Drummenagh Beg, Churchill, Co. Fermanagh with specific reference to the site being located within the environs of the Plantation Village of Churchill. A metal detection survey was also carried out on excavated spoil from the test trenches.

The archaeological test trenching and metal detection of the removed overburden revealed that the site did not contain any archaeological deposits or features, and no indication of a plantation village. As such it is recommended that works be allowed to continue with no further archaeological involvement.
