2015: A single trench evaluation revealed a rectangular clay lined feature and a possible post-hole or small pit. The internal faces of the feature were scorched suggesting an in-situ heating although the precise purpose of the feature was unknown. A small number of medieval pottery sherds were recovered from the pit fill, which may be contemporary with the feature (S1).
2015: Archaeological monitoring revealed a further section of the clay-lined pit that had partly exposed in the previous evaluation on the site. The pit was interpreted as likely to be the remains of a domestic bread oven. A small group of unstratified pottery were recovered from the vicinity of the feature dating from the late medieval through to the early post medieval periods (S2).
