Archaeology Notes

NT27SW 205 23842 73919

NT 238 739 A standing building survey was conducted in May 2006 in advance of conversion of the structure into 15 residential apartments. A Level 1 record was carried out on the property. All internal and external elevations were photographed. A descriptive written record was made of the materials used in the building's construction and any significant features were also noted. The former cabinet-making works was constructed in the early 20th century. There has been internal modification over the years to accommodate craft production, with an open plan and space for machinery. Later developments include modification to suit the needs of a showroom and factory. A watching brief and report on any findings at Sunbury House will be carried out at a later date to fulfil planning recommendations.

The report and archive will be lodged with CECAS and NMRS.

NT 238 739 An archaeological watching brief was carried out on groundworks for the construction of a new block of flats associated with the redevelopment of the Sunbury House site. A circular, brick-lined well was uncovered to the north-west of Sunbury House. It was filled with brick ash and metal pipes and is thought to have been abandoned sometime in the late 19th / early 20th century. The deposits in the area of the watching brief were over 3 metres and consequently the natural subsoil was not encountered.
