Between the 7th to the 9th of November 2016, Oxford Archaeology East undertook an evaluation at No. 41 Park Street, Dry Drayton (TL 38167 62032). This evaluation comprised four trenches of various lengths. Three of these trenches revealed archaeological remains that included three medieval ditches and a shallow post-medieval pond or a garden feature. The medieval ditches probably relate to the 12th- to 15th-century manor, the earthwork remains of which are located to the south-west of the site. The largest of these ditches appears to follow, or have been aligned with, the boundary of The Park, placing the evaluated site within the area of The Park complex. The post-medieval pond is located in close proximity to the subsequent manor house, which was rebuilt in the 1670s, and probably represents part of its garden area. The finds assemblage from the evaluation is modest in size and domestic in character; its small size suggests that the site was located on the periphery of the medieval and later occupation associated with the Manor.
