Summary

A clay layer thought to be the vestiges of either a floor level or demolition layer was discovered in association with a small pit or posthole during evaluation trenching in advance of development. The extent of the clay layer matched closely the footprint of a building shown on the first edition OS map of 1880 but which had been demolished by the drawing of the second edition in 1900. An 80cm depth of re-deposited sand was recorded at the rear of the development area. It had been deposited sometime after the start of the 19th century and was clearly the spoil from a large excavation, the result of either quarrying or landscaping although there was no indication of this having occurred within the sampled area.
