Full Description

Trenching across this site revealed a post-medieval ditch of 17th or 18th century which ran at approximately right-angles to the current road frontage. The trench nearest the road also revealed three pits which, despite containing oyster shell, animal bone and fired clay fragments, were undated. These could be Roman, medieval or post-medieval, although medieval or post-medieval seems most likely given the proximity of buildings of this age in the village (S1).
