A watching brief was undertaken on behalf of Rose Builders Ltd during construction work at Hythe Hill. At 124-125 Hythe Hill ground reduction was observed, approximately 1m was taken off the deep top soil, only revealing natural clay in one small area. Archaeological features observed were 1) a rubble filled pit, possibly a wall footing 2) a cobbled surface, probably an old yard.. The footings for the new structure cut into 300mm of medium brown clayey topsoil with tile fragments, there was one patch of oyster fragments and dust, lying over puggy, stiff brown natural clay. At 117-119 Hythe Hill nothing of archaeological significance was observed in the footings trenches. <1>
