Notes about this historic site

1 Watching Brief carried out by BUFAU in August 1995. The majority of activity within the study area was of late 17th century to early 18th century in date. This included a substantial wooden floor.
2 4 gas main trial trenches were observed along the south side of Long St. In Trench 1 a small compacted area of undated early road metalling was revealed, while in Trench 3 a layer of early rubble metalling over the natural clay was surfaced by large stone blocks. A single Medieval sherd came from the surface and several burnt bone fragments from beneath the metalling.
