Broome Manor Golf Complex, Swindon, Wiltshire

Bashford, Robin Broome Manor Golf Complex, Swindon, Wiltshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




In February 2016, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a two trench field evaluation at Broome Manor Golf Complex, Swindon, Wiltshire (centred on SU 16398 82204). The evaluation revealed the top of the natural clay which appeared to be overlain by a buried soil horizon in the northernmost of the trenches. The buried soil and natural geology were truncated by two ditches which are likely to correspond to field boundaries depicted on OS mapping from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The fills of these features were overlain by a series of landscaping deposits which are almost certainly associated with the creation of the golf course in the latter part of the 20th century. There was some evidence for truncation of the natural geology and the levelling out of the higher ground in the southernmost trench, possibly carried out during the construction of the former putting green (no longer extant).
