Archaeological evaluation on the site of the kitchen of the medieval guesthouse.

A rapid appraisla was made of the building in order to inform a planning decision regarding proposed demolition. The earliest datable features of the building which are visible today date from around the mid 18th century. It is possible that earlier fabric survives beneath the external render and internal plaster, and that the external projection of former ovens beside fireplaces at each gable end also might belong to an earlier phase, but there are no strong indications to believe so. Rather, the building's layout and present roof suggest a construction date in the 18th century. The interior underwent a substantial refurbishment in the 20th century when most internal partitions and doors were replaced, and the first-floor ceiling was raised. Since then, the windows have been replaced with plastic ones (2004), and the two fireplaces substantially rebuilt, the rebuilding covering over or removing the two ovens. The ceiling of the most easterly ground-floor room has also been removed to reveal the joists. These recent alterations have left behind only a few surviving features from the 18th-century phase, the roof being the best preserved amongst them.

Shallow excavations associated with laying a new path surface outside the chapel built in 1881 uncovered part of a wall footing which probably belonged to a small building shown standing on this site on the tithe map of 1843.

A former Wesleyan Methodist chapel built c. 1800, probably 1796, was recorded during its conversion for residential use. The single-storied chapel is built in the Gothic style and has a lozenge or boat-shaped plan with bowed front and rear walls.

The house at Lower Cotterbury Farm, Blackawton (SX8204 5081) is a late 18th- or early 19th-century mansion or villa built within the hinterland of Dartmouth. It incorporates remains from an earlier farmhouse probably of 17th-century date with an early 18th-century cross-wing. The building suffered extensive damage around the time of the Second World War, and was subsequently reduced to half its former width, the front half being largely dismantled and left as a garden ruin.

A desk-based assessment of the area close to the entrance to the castle from Totnes town prior to the construction of new visitor facilities.
1998
S Brown
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken during groundworks associated with the construction of a new site admissions building at Totnes Castle. The works located three wall footings probably associated with a medieval gatehouse, and a large stone foundation which may once have formed an abutment for a bridge leading into the medieval castle.

A watching brief was carried out during works to investigate and cap a void which appeared outside the shell keep wall in April 2002. The works revealed a post-medieval water tank and two post-medieval walls associated with the existing garden terraces which became established on the sides of the Norman motte in the late 16th or early 17th century.

Following a landslip on the side of the Norman motte at Totnes in January 1999, a watching brief was maintained and recording work undertaken during retaining works. The motte was found to be man made and built up in layers, overlying a late Saxon occupation deposit.

Following a landslip on the side of the Norman motte in January 1999, an archaeological watching brief and evaluation were carried out during an engineering geotechnical investigation of the motte's structure. The investigations included test pits, window samples, surface exposures, and deep boreholes. Profiles of the motte's structure were built up.

Following a landslip on the side of the Norman motte in January 1999, an archaeological watching brief was carried out during stabilization works in August 2000. Sample cores were taken from the motte's interior and recorded. Surface excavations were also carried out, revealing more about the motte's structure and composition. In addition, the works revealed part of the back block of a post-medieval house fronting onto Totnes High Street.

S Brown
The assessment comprises documentary research, map regression, and site observations. Existing garden terraces on the side of the Norman motte appear to date from the late 16th or early 17th century.
1999
S Brown
Two evaluation trenches were excavated to a maximum depth of 1.2m just inside the present castle entrance prior to the construction of a new ticket office. A medieval wall footing was located.
