Description of this historic site

An excavation was undertaken where pits were visible on aerial photographs. Ditches, post holes and smaller pits were found. There was no firm dating evidence, but the features may have been Neolithic. The site was 400m east of Bushey Hill, Barford.

Notes about this historic site

1 1965: Mechanical sections were cut across a group of large pits. Before excavation it had been suggested that they were tree pits. The pits actually appeared to be archaeological and possibly of Neolithic date. Ditches, post holes, stake holes and smaller pits were also found in these trenches.
