West Sussex Archaeology

Barn Hill Gardens Nursery, Pitch Hill, Ewhurst

Historic building recording and watching brief by West Sussex Archaeology identified the main building on the site as a four-bay threshing barn with a later open-fronted shelter abutted to its north-west corner. On cartographic evidence and construction style, the barn is of late 18th century date and may have been constructed in 1796, as evidenced by the carved date on a greensand block in its southern plinth wall.
