Possible glass slag found in fieldwalking by the Haslemere Group of SyAS could locate a furnace site known to be somewhere in this area. Occupation evidence and glazed tile could be from a smithy known to be here from map evidence.
Fieldwork and documentary research over several years by Judie English identified the once moated site of Pollingfold Mansion. Pottery indicates major occupation from the 13th to 15th centuries and abandonment at some time between 1700 and 1750. (191)
Fieldwalking by SRVSG near the site of several RB pits recovered a fragment of RB roof tile. (198)
Two metre length of substantial wall foundation exposed by site owner and examined by Haslemere Group of SyAS and reported by I R Turner. Possibly part of a later (at least postmid-17th century) extension to the medieval farmhouse. Pottery ranging from 13th to 19th century was noted. (197)
Fragment of Neolithic polished chert axe found in fieldwalking by Haslemere Group of SyAS and reported by I R Turner. (197). Nine other possible Neolithic flints were found in the same general area.
Observation by K D Graham for FMS of test holes dug for proposed redevelopment noted two fragments of RB roof tile. Probably manuring scatter
Resistivity survey by K D Graham for FMS located the ditch around the keep but only part of that around the bailey.
Aerial photography by K D Graham revealed the existence of a sub-rectangular double ditched enclosure of approximately 1.6ha. Possible IA date suggested by supposed finds by metal detector users of IA and Roman Republican coins in this area. Fieldwaiking of field immediately to west revealed a late 1st to early 2nd century RB site. (194; see note in this volume by David Graham and R A Merson)
Excavation by Judie English for SyAS in advance of redevelopment. A section to the NW of the present house showed that the moat had been recut recently, possibly in 1863 when the house was built. A trench on the island SE of the house produced evidence for a clay layer with associated pottery of the 12th to early 13th centuries. (206)
Site watching by D G Bird for SCC, of Conoco site topsoil removal. Nothing of interest noted apart from one probably Mesolithic flint core, a few burnt flints and two pieces of iron slag.
