Blackhorse excavation in 1997 prior to the A30 improvement scheme revealed an early-middle Iron Age post-built round house circa 6.5 meters diameter. An entrance facing south-east had two outer posts forming a porch. It yielded a Radiocarbon date of 770-370 cal. BC. There were no finds and few charred plant remains so it was not possible to suggest its use but it could be associated with field boundaries to the west.
