South side of Old Rectory and about 30 yds away.
Foundations of rectangular structure found and partly excavated by occupant. Floor of interior very even and hard - appears to be cement or mortar with ash mixed with it. Sides have traces of cement lining about 3/16 inch thick. Possibly water cistern. No associated objects but H. Tyrrell-Green suggests possible Norman date from regular courses of flint.
