Abstract:
The site is known to be the location of a 15th century clay extraction pit. The clay was used to make bricks, the manufacturing process probably being carried out on this site. Archaeological evidence for this comes from aerial photographs and observation in the mid 20th century. Due to the strenthening of flood defences a new dyke will cut across this field. Ahead of this 6 evaluation trenches were excavated. The edge of the clay extraction pit was noted in two of these. Areas of redeposited clay incorporating brick fragments were noted in two trenches. A pit containing pottery of an 11th- to 14th- century date along with under-fired and hard fired brick was excavated, along with three other undatable features. Overall the amount of brick found was small considering this is thought to be a manufacturing site, although disturbance in the late 18th/early 19th century and again in the 20th century may have removed much of the archaeological evidence.
