Full Description

An excavation was conducted ahead of development on the site of the former maltings.The site was heavily disturbed and terraced by the construction of the former maltings and the railway in the 19th century along with earlier post-medieval quarry pits. A small area of relatively undisturbed archaeology was excavated along the western edge of the site. Several pits and a probable ditch were identified and were post-medieval in date and therefore likely to be associated with the maltings. No medieval features were identified although residual medieval finds were recovered (S1).
