Notes about this historic site

1 A large late 17th century pit was uncovered during an evaluation in advance of development. It contained large quantites of roof tile, and a number of cattle horn cores, which is probably indicative of tanning in the vicinity. Local hearsay has it that there was tanning to the south of this site. Scraps of leather and a fragment of a shoe were also recovered from the pit.
