A planning application has been submitted to South Derbyshire District Council for residential development on a c 3.5ha site, located off Etwall Road and west of Dale Farm, Willington, Derbyshire (Fig 1). Existing aerial photographic crop-mark evidence from the site suggests the presence of two prehistoric monuments, towards its southern boundary: a putative hengiform monument, formed by two concentric circles, and a pennannular (C-shaped) enclosure (Air Photo Services 2004). The Development Control Archaeologist for Derby and Derbyshire has determined that, due to the archaeological potential of the site, pre-determination geophysical survey and trial trench evaluation is required. A geophysical survey of the site has been undertaken (Stratascan 2012) and a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI), for an initial phase of trial trench evaluation, was submitted by CgMs Consulting (Mortimer 2012). Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) were contracted to undertake the evaluation in 2013, and this report presents the results of this work.
