Valerie Manor, Upper Beeding, West Sussex.

An archaeological assessment was undertaken by CBAS at Valerie Manor, Upper Beeding, West Sussex. The work comprised two evaluation trenches with a cumulative length of 29m which informed a subsequent watching brief. Both phases of work revealed a high degree of modern truncation across the site, including a brick lined soak away and a grubbed out and backfilled swimming pool. However, a single gully terminal located at the northeast end of Trench 2 produced pottery of 12th Century origin. Although the gully was truncated by the modern impact, its presence strongly hints at Medieval antecedents to the 17th Manor House which is still upstanding on site. 

Furthermore, a significant depth of colluvium was recorded, with its base not being achieved at c2.1m below the current ground surface.
