The natural gravel was overlaid by a thin subsoil in which three prehistoric struck flint flakes were found. This was cut by a possible Roman pit. Much of the site was covered by a post-medieval horticultural soil, containing residual medieval pottery and tile, which was cut by six 17th - 18th-c pits, probably associated with market gardening. These were succeeded by Victorian terraced housing and then 20th-c housing.
