Notes about this historic site

1 Three trial holes, 1m square, were dug prior to construction of old peoples’ bungalows. Machine stripping indicated that a raised area was composed entirely of 19th century deposits. The site had previously been occupied by 17th century cottages, and an open slab-covered well presumed to be contemporary with these was revealed. The evidence from these excavations suggests that most of the nucleus of the Medieval village has been levelled at some time to below the surface of the alluvium. It is therefore unlikely that any ancient levels remain intact in this area.
