Published by Wessex Archaeology
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Winchester City Council (Engineering Services) to undertake an archaeological watching brief as a condition of the planning consent (Planning Reference: 05/00184/FUL) granted by Winchester City Council for land at New Farm, Northington Road, Itchen Abbas, Hampshire, during groundworks in advance of construction of a new sewage treatment works (hereafter ‘the Site’). The Site is centred on National Grid Reference 453558 133288.
The Site lay to the north of a number of Grade II listed buildings, but more significantly a large Late Roman and Early Anglo-Saxon cemetery was located less than 200m south of the Site. The cemetery was not expected to extend north of School Lane. Other archaeological evidence of medieval, possible Iron Age and possible Roman date had also previously been discovered in the area to the south of Itchen Abbas Primary School. In light of previous works in the area there was considered to be a moderate potential for archaeological finds or features to have survived within the development footprint.
