Monitoring of new drainage and the lowering of the floor levels in the N-S range of the building identified two pits a trench, a brick-lined well and a possible rammed earth floor. The pits both contained a layer of Fe slag and exhibited evidence of in situ burning. The pits cut the possible rammed earth floor surface which was post-medieval. The trench contained large quantities of post-medieval CBM. The well was post-medieval or modern. The monitoring revealed no Saxon or medieval features. During a site visit prior to the monitoring and recording four abraded early post-medieval sherds and three pieces of slag were collected (S1).
