Abstract

Subsequent to an archaeological evaluation to the rear of 100 High Street (TL 358 779) in 1998 a Brief for a basic archaeological investigation was issued to record any archaeological features found in excavations for the development at the front of the property. To this end, archaeological monitoring took place at 100 High Street to coincide with the excavation of two sewer trenches. The trenches showed that the ground had been made up in the later post-medieval period by up to 1.50 metres. Sealed beneath the make up, evidence for a ditch adjacent and parallel with the High Street, pits and a possible beam slot were found, but no dating evidence relating to these features was recovered.
