Type Watching Brief


NN 03099 03161 A watching brief was carried out January – February 2012 on work associated with the installation of drainage around several buildings in the W of the settlement. Several surfaces were recorded and the majority appeared to relate to the upstanding 19th-century buildings. The possible exceptions were a surface seen at the N end of Trench 1 and another seen at the W end of Trench 8, both of which may relate to a suite of buildings depicted on Langland’s estate map of 1789. Several former drainage systems were also recorded, mainly ceramic land drains and more recent concrete and plastic drains.
