The finds from the area excavation undertaken by Oxford Archaeology suggest consistent land use in the medievel period from the 10th century. In the SW corner a concentration of postholes suggests a building. in the mid to late 13th century. The disturbed remains of a insubstanial brick and rubble structure surviving to one brick course was also identifed 10m to the NW of the well measuring 2m x 1.5m. Brick and mortar rubble lay on a bed of mortar with traced of burning. The size of the bricks suggest an 18-19th century date - possibly a rudimentary garden incinerator (B4).
Note: in the original site interpretation, this later feature was thought to be a chimney base (B3).
