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.
Evaluation by W Weller of SCAU revealed a possible medieval or post-medieval ditch terminal and high levels of modern disturbance.
A watching brief by G Elliot of TVAS recorded a brick well of probable 19th century date and a brick wall running along the boundary of the site with Bishop’s Mead.
Evaluation by A Taylor of TVAS revealed a posthole and a large pit or terrace of early post-medieval date.
Evaluation by D Bray and A Taylor of TVAS revealed no finds or features of archaeological interest.
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)
Watching brief by W Weller of SCAU. No features of archaeological significance were revealed. Small quantities of modern pottery and ceramic building material suggested 20th century disturbance across the area.
Watching brief by D and A Graham of SyAS on tree clearance work. No finds or features of archaeological significance were revealed.
