Full Description

2012: Monitoring identified the original open-hall hearth, which during some time was also possibly used in the process of making broadcloth. It was located c.0.60m away from the 17th century fireplace in a central position. The hearth lay beneath an earlier floor level. Some architectural elements were also uncovered including an original mullioned window which had been filled in c 1570-1640, and possible evidence for an attached building to the side of the house. Within the floor of the house some unusual slag deposits were found, packed tightly into a gully which was linear and ran the entire depth of the hall, possibly the cut of an internal wall (S1).
