We have confirmed that there is a bay to our new building…but we have more to do to understand the function of the structure. Barn? Storehouse? Tenants house? What seems clearer now, thanks to input from Roger Cockett, is that we are looking at a late medieval/post-medieval structure.
The footings are full of worked stone and we have a very convenient source of dressed stone down at Randall Manor. So, we appear to have a late building, mostly timber, on a reused stone and chalk base and with a substantial tiled roof. Last week a large sarsen stone turned up on what must be one of the corners of the structure…and we know we are missing sarsens from the foundations at the Manor too!
