  • Trench 10 was orientated NW-SE and measured 20 x 4 metres; it was positioned across both ditch and bank of a drainage feature observed running south from the Guesten Hall fishpond downslope into the north end of the field. Topsoil (10001) was removed by machine, leaving a mid-brownish grey silty clay subsoil (10002) to be removed by hand. Below this subsoil deposit a number of discrete features were identified potentially relating to two separate phases. These included a ditch feature (F1005) in the southern end of the trench, and four structural posthole features localised in the northern end of the trench.
