Roman features, including ditches and several pits, were excavated prior to quarrying work. The site is 400m south west of the church at Stretton on Fosse.
1 To the E of the quarry two large ditches and several pits were observed in 1975-6. Only a very partial plan of the area was recovered ahead of quarrying, and consequently interpretations are not possible. The finds collected were very sparse, and of mixed date. It was felt by the excavator that the majority of features were Roman, although Neolithic (PRN 6056) and Iron Age (PRN 5508) may be indicated.
