Full Description

A deposit comprising loose stone, mortar and soil with scattered 19th/20th-century ceramic and glass fragments throughout. It appears to be a layer of rubble from a demolished former structure. Alternatively it may be material from a nearby structure that has been reposited and levelled for future use. <1>

There are no structures in the vicinity depicted on the 1st or later editions of the Ordnance Survey. This suggests that the structure was demolished prior to 1871. <2>
