Watching briefs undertaken by F Pemberton and S Nelson of SyAS revealed made-ground over the whole site in the form of dumped deposits comprising pottery kiln waste and other material of post-medieval date. The deposits filled shallow quarry pits, presumably dug to obtain sand. Little evidence of early occupation was found and it is likely that the area remained as back land/garden use probably until the 18th century. A small assemblage of 18th century clay tobacco pipe bowls, including some Dorking-manufactured examples, was retrieved. The assemblage of redware waster sherds, although not necessarily originally from the site, could be evidence of pottery manufacturing in Dorking in the post-medieval period.
