Monitoring of ground works for ancillary bedroom accommodation to the rear of the public house revealed extensive evidence for 19th and early 20th century pitting and the chalk floor for stabling of later Post medieval date that formerly stood on the site. In the eastern footing trench, making it at the most distant part of the foundations from the Public house building, a square, brick lined cesspit of 19th century date was revealed. While only finds of late 19th to early 20th century in the fill of this brick lined pit was of a classic pub/inn clearance type containing bottles, fragments of wine glasses in addition to sherds of late 19th/early 20th century transfer printed pottery.
