Description

A watching brief was carried out during groundwork’s at 240 Tadcaster road, York on the 7th and 8th June 2017. Within the limits of one of these trenches (Trench 1), the remains of former brick and mortar walls / structures were found. A cobble and brick surface was found underneath the modern garage floor. The deposits associated with these structures (context 15 and 18) contained fragmented pottery and glass dating to the late 18th and early to mid- 19th century. Brick typology concurs with this date. The structural wall remains and the cobble and brick surfaces are likely to be associated with the former White House, which dates to the mid 18th century and according to the 1853 OS Map, was located within the boundaries of the property at 240 Tadcaster Road.
