Summary. No evidence of any earlier phases of Tubswick was identified during the archaeological monitoring. It is possible that any surviving remains of earlier structures were destroyed during the construction and subsequent demolition of the Grade II listed brick-built Georgian farmhouse. However, no archaeological features which would be associated with a medieval or post-medieval farmstead, such as rubbish-pits, yard surfaces or a well, were identified during the monitoring. This suggests that the focus of the earlier habitation might have been located to the west, in the area formerly occupied by farm buildings.
