Full Description

2006: Monitoring work was conducted inside and outside of a Grade II listed building which formed part of the 18th and 19th century maltings complex. The footings for the brick maltings was identified and recorded in sections and consisted of mixed red bricks. Below the brickwork large fragments of worked stone were recorded. Inside the building several post-medieval build-up layers were identified below the remains of a clay floor. A possible Medieval brick-lined well was recorded below these build-up layers along with other earlier features, which remained preserved in situ. Outside of the building three post-medieval pits and a brick-lined well were identified (S1).
