Full Description

Well G1018 (PI. 3) was circular with a masonry lining 0.22m thick and with an internal diameter of 0.85m.lt was built of flint (as nodules and rounded cobbles), fragments of septaria and tile, all randomly coursed and bonded heavily with a creamy yellow mortar. There was some indication of alternating tile and stone courses. The space between the masonry lining and its construction cut was filled with firm, yellowish brown clay containing moderate cobbles and tile fragments. Only the upper 1.20m of the well could be excavated. It was backfilled (probably in the early 17th century) with demolition rubble, domestic refuse and (possibly) cess, (S1).
