Summary. Observations were made after a short trench had been dug for a new wall at the rear of 96 High Street ('Axe Music'). The watching brief has shown that no archaeological remains were impacted during this work. It is highly likely that archaeological deposits exist on the site, but unfortunately the trench was not deep enough to reach archaeological levels, the top 500mm being modern make-up. One fragment of Roman tile or brick and one sherd of 17th-century tin-glazed pottery were the only finds.
