Notes about this historic site

1 Excavations were carried out. Rebuilding in the 16th century, after the town fires, had removed any previous evidence.
2 Demolition of a Victorian house allowed examination of an additional area. Removal of modern and 19th century layers revealed a palimpsest of features cut into the natural gravel, with the footings of a building of Tudor date. This once more indicated the complete clearance of the site in the 16th century. Traces were, however, found of an earlier building (PRN 869).
