Pitched stone surface at site of Hanham Hall

Further work at Hanham Hall has been carried out recently, with the excavation of trenches for drainage being monitored. These were excavated at various locations around the Hall. Those carried out on the north-west side of the Hall, in particular within the north west courtyard, exposed fragments of a pitched-stone surface, which probably dates to the 19th century when these buildings were in use as a barn and associated farm buildings. A number of spreads of mortar were also identified above this surface and are thought to relate to the redevelopment of these buildings in the early 20th century. At the front of the Hall the foundations of two walls were exposed and a number of drains. The original line of the 19th century boundary wall was found to the north of the hall, which had been truncated by the early 20th century additions.
