Notes about this historic site

1 Archaeological observation of the groundworks associated with the construction of new properties at 42, High Street, Hillmorton (EWA 7322, centred on SP53147356) revealed a 19th century pit, an undated pit, possible yard surfaces, and an undated ditch. The ditch appeared to correspond with a 19th boundary shown on the OS map of 1886 and the possible yard floors were also likely to be later post-medieval in date.
