Full Description

Monitoring of works at 1-3 High Street showed thick archaeological deposits to a depth of c.3m at the rear of the property. This indicated a deep series of pits or other cut features that contained medieval and Saxon pottery. Within the building, where a basement had been extended, traces of archaeological features could been seen adhering to the concrete footings of the 1960s building. Unfortunately the basement was dug out without archaeological supervision and no dating evidence recovered. A mortared flint well and other structural remains of probable post-medieval date could have been contemporary with or part of the Barleymow public house that stood on this site until 1966 (S1).
