 The Portionerís House in Beddington Park: Design for an excavation by Carshalton and District History and Archaeology Society, 2012

Location of the dig is shown HERE

Report 7 for 19 August 2012

Progress seems to have been rather slow today. We actually did a lot of work but there was not much in the way of new discoveries.

We have nearly completed the excavation the ground floor and have continued to empty the cellar but have not yet reached the bottom.

The recording of the small trench was completed and it has now been backfilled.

The site plan was completed and we also measured a lot of bricks which will help with the dating when the statistics have been processed.

Work will continue tomorrow activity is gradually shifting from excavation to recording.
