LAND OFF LOUGHBORIUGH ROAD HATHERN MAP REF. SK50402180
"The assessment found no evidence for remains from the prehistoric or Roman periods at the site , although there was some evidence for the surrounding areas. in recent years, the use of the site for arable farming had given the chance to yield chance finds, but nothing was recovered. This, together with the absence of evidence from the site, made it unlikely that significant archaeological remains would be recovered."

"Finds (which were kept) include pottery indicative of early Roman site within 400m of River Trent*, sherds of late Roman and possibly Iron Age and diamond-shaped possibly Roman roofing slate, flint material including very fine mesolithic microlith ."
*From map ref. I think this should be River Soar.
