Summary

An archaeological monitoring was carried out inside this 18th-century, Grade 2 Listed Building following ground reduction for the insertion of a new floor.

The monitoring revealed the brick foundations of earlier buildings and structures, including the base of a possible malting kiln, all dated provisionally to the 17th- or early 18th centuries. External deposits of probable mid 17th-century date (including a possible yard surface and lime-working area) were identified but could not be excavated.

The results are of local significance in relation to the history and development of the Isaac Lord complex..
