The potential for preserved medieval archaeological deposits to be present within the PDA is thought to be high, due to the location of the PDA opposite St Clements Church. The potential for encountering Saxon deposits is low but cannot be ruled out, due to the close proximity of known Saxon remains to the south-west of the PDA. There is also the potential for discovering evidence of past industrial and craft activity, possibly either ceramic production of some type or carpentry, within the PDA.
