Day 6

Friday, June 26th, 2015

Today we have had a visit from our partners at the Durham Record Office, the local press and TV. Work is progressing well, the area around our mystery concrete block is slowly being revealed, work on the rifle range area has revealed a hard packed earth floor.

Trench 3 revealed some fragments of beautifully painted plasterwork and two electical conduits, in trench 4 we have located the return on the wall of the cobbled yard and finds include broken glass bottles and kitchen ware. On the long narrow rear wing of the house, Jon’s team have lifted a section of fallen wall, revealing that it had fallen outwards into a grass covered area and on the other side they have an interior floor surface with a row of large flag stones and brick, outside there is a cobbled surface very similar to the yard in trench 4.
