A total of 94 fragments of artefacts was recovered from the 2002 excavation. Approximately 50% of the assemblage was represented by pottery, the remainder comprising ceramic building material, iron, clay pipe, animal bone, and fragments of stone, coal and fuel ash. For the most part, the finds were in a fair condition, although many fragments were clearly quite abraded, having been recovered from essentially disturbed deposits. The material was collected from cleaning layers, ditch and pit fills, and spoil heaps. Several sherds of medieval pottery were present, but the majority of the finds derived from the 18th and 19th centuries.
