Notes about this historic site

1 1976: Four trial trenches dug by hand. Trench A produced traces of Post Medieval outbuildings, which were still standing in 1976. Traces of 3 probable floor layers were also found. Trench B produced a possible Post Medieval building and possible cultivation layers. Trench C produced very little and D produced the main Post Medieval building sealing a later Medieval plough soil. Traces of the destroyed building included a stone slab floor and a possible hearth containing a clay pipe stem. Some Medieval features were found, seemingly consisting of ditches and pits, although this activity appears not to have been that extensive.
2 Henry VIII, Tudor halfpenny of the York Episcopal mint issued by Archbishop Edward Lee and three-farthings of Elizabeth I from London mint found.
