5 Castle Street, Farnham

Watching brief and building recording by C Turner of HN revealed evidence of alterations to the building dating from the 1830s onwards. Excavations within the cellar revealed that the building had been terraced into the hill, removing any trace of earlier deposits.

Town centre, Farnham

Programme of community test-pitting directed by A Sassin and D Graham of SyAS. Nineteen 1m test pits were excavated at Farnham Park, High Park Road, Farnham Library, the Museum of Farnham, the Old Vicarage, Bishop’s Meadow, the Memorial Hall and the West Street allotments. All were generally outside the known medieval core of the town so little of that date was found other than some residual 12th/13th century pottery at the library and Memorial Hall along West Street, attesting to the ribbon development westward during that period.


Magnetometer survey by A and D Graham of SyAS revealed two possible tile kilns, lying parallel, although slightly offset to each other and both measuring c 7m long. (Bulletin 450)
