Archaeology students of the Institute of Science and the Environment, at the University of Worcester conducted an archaeological investigation at Oldbury Farm, SO 827 554, on March 7 and 14, 2017, to follow up the results of field survey undertaken in 2016. Test pits were placed in an area in which Middle Palaeolithic and Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age flints had been previously recovered. Excavation and further surface pick-up identified an area of fire cracked rock which coincides with an area of ferrous dipolar anomalies revealed by a gradiometer survey conducted by CsMg associates (2016). These results suggest the presence of prehistoric activity, which invites further investigation.
