During 1973 and 1974, construction work continued to be monitored along the south-east bank of the proposed reservoir : The site (code EMP 73) was initially discovered in June 1973, in an area known as Renner's Park about 1OOm north east of the north end of Normanton Hall gardens at SK 9362 0670, and excavations were directed by M.S. Gorin. The site comprises a series of loosely associated features excavated separately which seem to centre on a group of masonry buildings, and include a well, an H-shaped corn drier, and an ironworking furnace. Unfortunately, only the corn drier was planned in detail (fig. 24), and no overall plan of the features was made. This report is based on the photographic evidence and site records.
