The Feathers PH, High Street, Walton (FEX 317, TM 2952 3560) evaluation trenching for a small residential development to the rear of the The Feathers PH, a Grade II listed building of late 16th/early 17th century origin revealed mainly evidence for Post medieval activity. In the western half of the site the only features were a shallow ditch and small pit while the trench across the eastern half revealed evidence for extensive 18th/19th century pitting. With regard to the latter area of the site it is of interest that this plot of land is called 'Hemplands' on the parish tithe map and it is suggested the pits were for hemp retting, perhaps for a rope industry associated with the maritime world at this coastal location (S1).
