Excavation (5 July 2010 - 23 July 2010)

NS 5922 6818 An excavation was carried out 5–23 July 2010 within the footprint of a proposed development site. The area included the building and a proposed drainage area. The excavation uncovered a variety of structural features and deposits relating to the early phases of the Saracen Pottery through to the modern incorporation of the site in the grounds of a primary school.

The features were recorded and a significant body of material was recovered. The structural features recorded

included the remains of possibly five kilns, the base of a chimney and numerous brick walls. More modern features included concrete stances and modern services. It was recommended that the material and information recovered should be subject to post-excavation analysis, and that there is potential for further on-site monitoring of areas not covered by this excavation.
