19th century

The White Horse Hotel, Haslemere

Evaluation by R Poulton of SCAU, on behalf of the Strathmoor Group, of a site proposed for residential development. Three trial trenches were excavated and only one feature, which contained 19th/20th century material, was revealed. This shallow ditch is likely to represent a late field boundary, rather than the edge of the town plots. (321)

6-7 Castle Street, Farnham

A watching brief was maintained by A & K D Graham of SyAS on the refurbishment of these buildings and a pair of timber framed barns (formerly a malthouse and kiln) to their rear and trial excavation was carried out in the garden. The main buildings were rebuilt c.1958 and the only evidence for an earlier phase was part of the north wall, which incorporated a probably Tudor fireplace. No evidence for occupation earlier than the late 18th/early 19th century was seen in trial pits or builders’ trenches.

220 Stafford Road, Caterham

Partial excavation of an infilled well in the garden by the BSAG and CNHSS. The shaft was lined with hand made and mostly unfrogged bricks, suggesting the feature is late 18th/early 19th century in date. A cottage is first shown in this vicinity on a map of 1820. The well was infilled late in the 19th century.

42 London Road, Bagshot

Excavation by SHAHT continued. Further evidence for the 17th-19th century tannery was recorded, below which flood deposits sealed levels of Romano-British date. Pottery recovered indicates occupation from the mid/late 1st century through to the late 3rd. Further flood deposits below these levels sealed ditches associated with concentrations of burnt and struck flint and pottery, which appears to be early Neolithic in date. (309)
