A watching brief was held during groundwork for an extension onto The Rose & Crown' pub facing the Old Coach Road. Work involved the demolition of an existing extension and the reduction of the site ground level by 0.6m. Removal of the extension revealed the north gable of the pub, which was photographed. It also revealed part of a front wall footing which was constructed of unfrogged medieval bricks. Most of the reduced area was obscured by redeposited topsoil. At the south-eastern corner of the site a north-south section against the Old Coach Road revealed a two distinct layers of earlier road metalling, consisting of 13cm of gravel above a 25cm layer which continued beyond the bottom of the excavated area.<1>
