Notes about this historic site

1 A structure of possible Medieval construction was uncovered during archaeological observation at Hill Cottage in January 2011. The wall was constructed of oolitic limestone blocks on the exterior, rubble build on the interior with a yellow-brown clay used as bonding material. The remains of an internal cobbled surface of rough limestone fragments were also recorded. The building measured some 3.3m wide externally and probably 7m long. The author suggests a 14th to 16th century date, and a possible link between this building and the priory church, as it was constructed on rectory or church land. A possible use as a dovecote or building associated with the fishponds is postulated.
