Abstract:
In October 2015 trial trenching was carried out in connection with residential development of the site. Documentary information indicated that a former road of probable medieval date crossed that southern edge of the site and that a number of buildings stood on and immediately adjacent to the site in the mid-18th century. The results showed that there was no evidence of these former structures suggesting that they were in fact sited further to the north in the plot now occupied by the current church. Their demolition is likely to have been carried out in 1841 in order to make way for the construction of the newly dedicated Christ Church built to replace the earlier St. Samsons.The 1747 map also showed an ancient route-way (to Broadwas) crossing the southern boundary of the study site. This road feature was investigated by trench 3, the results showing that at the east end of the site this former monastic road appears to have comprised nothing more than a rudimentary track hollowed out through continued use rather than some form of deliberately deposited road material such as small stones and/or metalling.Pottery was retrieved from all of the trenches and was generally dated from the 17-18th centuries, those collected from trenches 1 and 2 where the largest quantity was found, were all residual and their deposition possibly related to the occupation of the earlier farmstead to the north. A lack of any earlier residual finds suggests little activity within the study site before the 17th and 18th centuries.
