Monitoring identified a medieval soil horizon which contained residual pottery sherds of late 12th to 14th century date. A single medieval feature was revealed in the form of a probable pit which contained pottery of likely 13th century date. The medieval soil and ?pit were sealed below a post-medieval soil build-up of c. 0.5m in depth, below modern garden soils and rubble make-up. This appears to demonstrate a significant gap in domestic activity in the vicinity of the site until the establishment of 19th to 20th century garden soils relating to Church Cottage and the grounds of the former vicarage fronting St Johns Street, known as Radford House. The brick footings of the former 19th century cottage were encountered at the eastern end of the cart lodge footprint. A large pit containing 19th-20th century rubble was encountered. Other noteworthy finds include a single sherd of well abraded Late Saxon pottery and two examples of Late Neolithic to Bronze Age worked flint (S1).
