Full Description

Excavation on the northern, eastern and western sides of Wenham Castle revealed a potentially large disturbance which was 7m wide to the north-west of the structure which contained small fragments of Post medieval peg tile in its upper fill and is probably a large pit. The only finds in the upcast spoil were brick and tile fragments of later Post medieval date. This feature may be a quarry or rubbish disposal type pit (S1).
