This second phase of evaluation, by Les Capon of AOC on behalf of TAB Projects Ltd., revealed two tree pits, probably related to the use of the site as allotments. However, the dominant feature was a wide palaeochannel with remains of pollen that provided evidence for the local flora in the late Devensian / Holocene period.
An archaeological evaluation, and watching brief was undertaken by Nick Carter, Chris Clarke and Jonathan Moller of AOC on behalf of Morgan Sindall Plc, at the site of Cranleigh Village Hospital. The evaluation consisted of three machine excavated trenches with the watching brief monitoring both geotechnical investigations and grubbing of foundations.
An archaeological evaluation, by Ian Hogg of AOC for SCC, consisted of a 2x2m hand dug trench located to the rear of the property. An undated yet presumed post medieval boundary ditch on the same alignment as the current property boundary was recorded; this was overlain by made ground deposits.
Watching brief by D&A Graham of SyAS. The footing trenches for a conservatory were inspected. The trenches were only 40cm deep however, and cut entirely within a dark soil level that had been extensively disturbed by drains associated with the existing building. No material earlier than the 20th century was noted.
Watching brief by D&A Graham of SyAS. The footing trenches for an extension were examined. No finds or features of archaeological interest were revealed, with the site having apparently been horizontally truncated during the construction of a previous extension in the 20th century.
Traces of a revetment of a possible earlier moat were recorded in a workman's trench (Nov 1975) by Dr A.G. Crocker. A 15th century pottery sherd was associated with the revetment. (125)
Two seasons of excavation (1975 and 1977) by F.H. Thompson for the Society of Antiquaries and SyAS concentrated on the defences and a number of anomalies indicated by gradiometer survey by A.J. Clark. The defences consisted of a single stone-faced rampart and a V-shaped ditch, possibly right round the promontory. The primary ditch silt on the south-east side was sampled for Mr Clark's sediment dating programme.
Excavation (1977) by J.A. Janaway for the Godalming Group of SyAS located 17th and 18th century pits cutting an apparently medieval layer which in one place overlay traces of another deposit containing flint flakes. (141)
Excavation (1976) by J.A. Janaway for the Godalming Group of SyAS located a trench feature cutting a possible medieval layer. (131)
Excavation (1976) by J.A. Janaway for the Godalming Group of SyAS revealed 18th /19th century pits and buildings cutting a layer containing medieval pottery and flint flakes. (131)
