Ditch c 1m wide by 0.6m deep recorded by G H Cole in building foundation work. The upper fill contained post-medieval pottery, the lower medieval and Surrey white ware sherds. (182)
Trial excavation by C H Cole for the Surrey Heath Group of SyAS produced evidence of occupation from the 13th/14th centuries to the present. Finds included a nearly complete late 16th century shoe. (184) In further excavation the earliest levels seen were a medieval trampled layer cut by a boundary and/or drainage ditch and by a 16th century building of two phases which was demolished in the mid-17th century.
Recording by T C Welsh of rectangular dry-moated enclosure and annexe, possibly an early site of Bagshot Manor. The main enclosure is 73 x 38m internally, with banks 4 to 7m broad and ditches approx 6m wide; the annexe is 83 x 25m and mutilated. (184)
Preliminary reassessment by .J F Cotton, D J Field and Pat Nicolaysen of major collection'of Palaeolithic material now in the Pitt-Rivers Museum, Oxford. It-includes some 558 artefacts of which nearly 450 are complete or fragmentary handaxes. Most of the material came from on or near the surface of the Greensand or superficial deposts of brickearth, except for a group from a gravel pit.
Second season of excavation by G H Cole for Surrey Heath Group of SyAS allowed examination of 13th and 14th century timber and stone structures. These included a large buttressed stone wall with associated 14th century occupation levels, flint cobbled floor and tile roof. (197)
Sample excavations by G H Cole for the Surrey Heath Group of SyAS produced evidence for a possible late medieval house platform with a robbed sandstone wall footing. The platform was cut by early 17th century and later pits, gullies and post holes. A backfiiled waterlogged area was interpreted, with the aid of documentary evidence, as possibly being 16th century fish ponds. (193)
Trial excavation by G H Cole for Surrey Heath Group of SyAS of an apparent hilltop ditched enclosure noted on aerial photographs produced no evidence to explain either the marks or a positive resistivity survey. In site observation during development, Mesolithic flakes and cores, medieval and later coins and pottery were found.
Two seasons of excavation by G H Cole for Surrey Heath Group of SyAS. The first located extensive probably late IA to early RB bronze and iron slag and related deposits, a large IA ditch, a 3rd century RB timber framed structure, a post-4th century palisade and plank-formed building and various later RB ditches. Some 5.4m of the timber sole plate of the 3rd century building survived as charcoal. (208)
Final phase of excavation by G H Cole for Surrey Heath Group of SyAS located the outfall of an early 17th century wooden water supply pipe partly excavated in 1983. It is thought to have supplied an artificial pond for watering animals. Possibly Mesolithic flint flakes, a scattering of abraded 3rd/4th century RB pottery and various 13th-14th century ditches and other features were also recorded. (212)
Third season of excavation by G H Cole for Surrey Heath Group of SyAS. Discoveries included several 1st and 2nd century ditches and IA and RB pottery.
