Notes about this historic site

1 1968: Rescue excavation of a ring ditch (PRN 6079) in advance of bypass construction revealed traces of a Post Medieval barn. The site is on a gently rising hillock just above the floodplain. Pits and slot features were dated by glass, brick and quern fragments to the late 16th century/early 17th century. Documents show that a barn stood on the site in this period and these features were without doubt part of it. The barn appears to have abutted a fence line.
