Battlebridge House, Merstham

Evaluation by D Dobson and D Killock of PCA, for Crest Homes, revealed evidence dating from the post-medieval period to the present day. One trench produced Bronze Age flintwork and a late 12th century pit. Further work revealed a truncated ditch aligned roughly east to west, the fills of which contained a sherd of Mid-Late Saxon pottery and one dating to the 12th century. This feature is likely to be the remains of a field or enclosure boundary. Residual late Mesolithic / early Neolithic flint, mid-late Bronze Age flint and pottery, and a few sherds of both Iron Age and Roman pottery indicate that the site was also used during these periods, but truncation is likely to have removed any associated features.
