Full Description

Extension to rear of existing building. c.1.4m of topsoil were removed from the site revealing the uppermost surviving layers. The only obvious post Roman features were a brick soakaway of C18 or C19 date, well, cellar and a topsoil filled pit in the SE corner of the site. The bottom of the cellar was 1.5m below present ground level and bottles in the fill indicate backfilling c.1860. The well was built of septaria, Roman tile and a few tiles of red brick clay. The well had been capped with a dome of bricks. <1>
