Evaluation by A Mundin of TVAS revealed that the natural gravel geology was overlain by alluvial clay deposits, which in turn were sealed by dumped rubble deposits in the late 19th century. A number of modern walls were present, but no evidence of earlier archaeological remains was recorded.
Watching brief by A and D Graham of SyAS revealed evidence of post-medieval pits and a wall that may represent evidence of a cellar that appeared to pre-date the construction of the current 18th century building.
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.
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.
