Full Description

During renovation to the Grade II listed barn, dated to c.1700AD a pottery assemblage was discovered. Located beneath the ENE end of the barn, a fired kiln deposit within a square cut was revealed, possibly representing the remains of a kiln site. A well was also discovered adjacent to the "Kiln Area". Colchester museum dated the pottery to c.1350 AD onwards and some post medieval sherds were within the assemblage, beneath the barn, the remains of a flint rubble wall foundation alligned West - East were also discovered. It is possible that a pottery kiln was located on the site prior to the barn land (and possibly also the wuse?) being constructed. <1>.
