A3 Hog's Back to B3000

Report by K D Graham of fieldwork on the A3 improvement scheme. Little material was recovered, even near the known RB villa at Compton. A handful of RB tile was found at the southern end of this part of the road scheme, and a few struck flint flakes and sherds of medieval pottery were also recovered generally along the route. (229)

Hog's Back

Location of Armada beacon suggested by M J Alexander in contrast to location proposed in SyAC 78, 1987, 103-8 by F Kitchen. (231). Supported by G Robinson. (232)

Guildford Castle

Excavation by R J Poulton for SyAS, SCAU and Guildford Borough Council in Castle Cliffe Gardens located a large deep ditch which had probably been largely infilled by the early 13th century. It is postulated that it was the original outer bailey ditch, filled in when the Castle was extended further south to the Quarry Street line in the 13th century, for the Royal Palace.

Cabell Road, Guildford

Small-scale excavation by Audrey Monk for Guildford Group of SyAS to test the site which was producing small abraded sherds of RB pottery and tile. A few more abraded RB sherds were found but it is thought doubtful that the excavation evidence supported the hypothesis of a Roman road. (257)

Henley Park

Investigation by Audrey Monk and Barbara Blatchford for the Guildford Group of SyAS of sections revealed by removal of the swimming pool and trial holes dug by contractors, to check for traces of the medieval manor. Nothing of significance was found but the area had been very disturbed in recent times. (255)
