Type Watching Brief


NT 2648 7392 An archaeological watching brief was undertaken during September and October 2006 on main

contract groundworks in response to a planning condition. The work followed an evaluation in 2004 that encountered the foundations of a 19th-century building truncating a series of 'topsoil' deposits. These contained domestic waste including pottery dating from the medieval and post-medieval periods. The

groundworks associated with the development did not extend deeper than the upper of these deposits, and recovered artefacts of post-medieval to modern date.
