A small oven was found during monitoring in 2008 of footing trenches for an extension at the rear of No.2 Southgate Street, a medieval timber-framed building in the medieval core of the town. The oven was sealed beneath a medieval clay floor which was cut by later rubbish pits. The pits were dated by pottery to 16th-18th century. Further trenches were excavated for a cart lodge at the rear of the plot in 2013, which revealed a postmedieval wall footing.
