Location Context Title Context Description Description (Modern)
No. 3 Church Lane The building had good outer walls of burnt brick throughout (so far as preserved) which abutted on the SW side of No. 5, which must have been standing earlier; since the Hendur-sag chapel similarly abutted on No. 3 the latter was in date of construction intermediate between its neighbours- though that need not imply any real lapse of time. The inside level was artificially raised to about the same height as that of No. 5, and, as there, the internal walls had solid foundations of mud brick above which was a "damp-course" of burnt bricks above which again the wall presumably went up in mud brick, but the mud brickwork and most of the burnt brick had vanished. In front of the entrance was a small lump of burnt brickwork projecting into Church Lane; it was shapeless, but was probably the remains of a flight of steps leading up to the front door. The jambs and the threshold of the front door had disappeared but the door's position was certain. (none)
