Full Description

A monitoring carried out during the excavation of footing trenches for an extension to 10 Angel Hill uncovered evidence of the earlier occupation of the site. At the front of the property was a clay floor that is likely to be of late medieval date. Several postholes appeared in a section of footing that were set back approximately 7.5m from the street front and these may show the line of the back wall of earlier buildings. Below the clay there were disturbed gravel layers that may be evidence for quarrying to extract gravel. A pit dated to the 17th century in the northernmost trench ran underneath the rear of the standing building that is thought to be Georgian (S1).
