Full Description

Archaeological features were recorded in the majority of the trenches on the site suggesting that there is a reasonable amount of historical remains present on the site. The activity was particularly concentrated in the southern and western side of the site and closer to the road, which is typical of general medieval roadside development. The archaeological activity largely represented medieval plot boundaries and associated features relating to properties which had once lined the northern side of Mill Street. A possible quarry pit and two bottle dumps indicate later activity of post-medieval to modern date (S1).
