|Name:||Post medieval pits and post hole on The Old Bowling Green|
An archaeological evaluation revealed only post medieval pits and a posthole and perhaps a pond. This probably indicates that when the ground was lowered to form the bowling green all archaeological evidence for the medieval town was destroyed.

December 1995. Trial Trench.
Evaluation of proposed development site.
Revealed only pits and a posthole, and perhaps a pond containing post medieval building material. Probably indicates that lowering of ground level to form bowling green had removed archaeological layers.
See report (S1) for further details. The results of this work are also summarised in (S2).
Previously recorded under NHER 9200.
