Situated on a S-facing slope and on the NW side of Main Street. An archaeological rescue excavation and watching brief (E000404) in 1987 uncovered evidence of a medieval building (ME036-048046-) and other features. In the course of the watching brief a substantial wall (L 8m plus; Wth of base 1.8m; max. H 1m) with base-batters on both faces was identified running NE-SW over the area of the house (ME036-048046-) and parallel with the present street. A sherd of medieval cooking ware was recovered from the fabric, and the wall was sealed beneath garden soil and rubble. (Walsh 1990-91, 45) Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 9 July 2019
