Test Pit 65: Archeox Shed - Ark T centre, John Bunyan Baptist Church, between Beauchamp Lane and Crowell Road.
In November 2011 two test pits were dug in the grounds of the Ark T Centre. The
first, EOXP Test Pit 5 (AKT 1), was on the eastern side of the grounds, adjoining
Crowell Road. This revealed a medieval ground surface and a possible Romano-
British V shaped ditch. There was very little modern material but finds included
medieval pottery sherds in good condition and a fragment of white ware mortaria.
The site of this test pit was at least a metre above the pavement of Crowell Road
and it was concluded that this was a result of hollowing which may have occurred
during the medieval and post-medieval centuries before the road was surfaced.
