HOLLY HOUSE FARM, SCAFTWORTH, NOTTS.REPORT ON GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY, OCTOBER 1995
Author(s): M A Cole
Geophysical survey was undertaken over a square triple-ditched enclosure (Scheduled Ancient Monument Nottinghamshire 56) at Holly House Farm, Scaftworth, near Bawtry, Notts, in response to a request from the Humber Wetlands Project. Resistivity and magnetometry surveys were carried out in an attempt to map accurately the locations of the enclosed ditches (evident as cropmarks on APs), locate any entrances and identify any internal features. The site conditions were particularly well suited to resistivity survey which clearly detected the main ditches and provided some evidence of internal structures. Additionally, the magnetometer survey detected some signs of activity within the enclosure as well as mapping a possible annex to the south. Unfortunately, no firm conclusions can be drawn on the basis of either survey as to the function of the enclosure.
