Stone field drains, possibly 17th century, NE of the church in Weddington
A series of linear field drains constructed of local quarzite stone. Running north-south. Possibly 17th century as Dugdale recorded similar in 'The History of Imbanking and Drayning of Diverse Fenns and Marshes' 1662
1 A stone field drain was initially discovered in an evaluation trench. The stone construction was identified as local quartzite by the excavator, Keith Scott.
2 3 Geophysical survey using a Wenner Array was used by Alan Cook in 1997 to plot a series of stone field drains. They were estimated to be aligned north-south at 5.5 yds apart with at least 12 in the area to the NE of the church. The surveyor suggests that the type is similar to 17th century examples recorded by Dugdale in The History of Imbanking and Drayning of Diverse Fenns and Marshes in 1662.
