These comprised the beamslots of a possible farm range, and structural remains of the north wall of a medieval house. The buildings formed part of the medieval Poyle Manor, and limited artefactual evidence suggests that occupation began during the late 11th or 12th centuries. Some evidence for the layout of the house and outbuildings in the Georgian period, and later, was also recorded. Five worked flints were recovered, all residual in later contexts. Pieces present were of Mesolithic and late Neolithic/early Bronze Age date (2000-1700).
