In September and October 2008, Oxford Archaeology (OA) undertook a field investigation at Ranton Abbey Estate, Staffordshire (NGR SJ 838 242) for CgMs Consulting on behalf of Grainger PLC. The work was carried out as a condition of an existing Scheduled Monument Consent (SMC). A desk-based assessment (CgMs 2008) and a geophysical radar survey (Stratascan 2008) had previously been commissioned. The three-trench investigation revealed make-up deposits formed during landscaping of the site in the 18th century. A single posthole was discovered during the works, though no certain structural remains of the abbey were observed. Some worked stone and medieval glazed floor tile were recovered from the trenches but had been redeposited in later landscaping layers. No in situ deposits associated with the abbey were identified in the trenches.
