Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken during the development of the site, which lies within the historic core of Winkleigh, 70 metres to the south east of the medieval Parish Church and 140 metres south of the 12th century motte and bailey mound. The 1880s Ordnance Survey depicts a small rectangular building within the northern part of the site. It was therefore possible that any works involving ground reduction could reveal archaeological deposits or features. The watching brief covered the footings and heating trenches for the new building. The footings trenches to the north of the site revealed a number of features, including a coal-rich layer which reinforced reported use of the area at one time as a coal yard. The northernmost footing revealed a large pit, probably a waste pit, possibly septic, the finds were of 19th and 20th century dates. The two geothermal trenches to the south of the site revealed the ditch of the extant hedgebank and a clay sealed feature which may be a pit or possibly a ditch, these features contained no dateable finds. The topsoil from the site contained a variety of ceramics including N. Devon medieval coarseware, N. Devon post-medieval wares and C19/20 varieties. One lug appears to be Bronze Age in date.
