Find were relatively few, but the chronology is supported by three radiocarbon dates. The largest of the areas also contained a substantial 2nd-century Roman rectangular timber-framed building set within a system of fields and passocks, which was remodelled around the middle of the 3rdcentury. A substantial furnace was located within this building, and a smaller one outside the structure. The building fell out of use in the early 4th century. A post0built curricular Roman building was also recorded , The final phase of activity an earlier system of land allotment than that depicted on the earliest Ordnance Survey maps of this area..
