Description of this historic site

Documentary evidence suggests three buildings stood here in the Medieval period. Archaeological work found two Medieval/Post Medieval wells and several walls.

Notes about this historic site

1 A desktop assessment of the Woolpack Hotel identified an area on the south side of the market place which covered three Medieval properties. The Woolpack has been an inn since at least the 16th century. The potential for surviving Medieval remains is high on the parts of the site not disturbed by later cellars. The existing buildings are Listed and date to the later 18th and early 19th centuries.
2 Pits and possible structural features inside the Woolpack buildings dating from the 16th – 18th centuries (and possibly earlier). Two late medieval or post medieval wells were also found along with walls from the Post Medieval period recognisable in the earliest detailed plans of the Woolpack.
