Blog From The Cellar

Yesterday was stone finds day – how exciting.  We found two pieces of beautifully shaped mullion uprights in the debris from the demolition, now given a finds number and waiting to be measured and  cleaned up.  They look the same shape and profile as the ones that are in Under Whitle’s larder window.  We will have to measure them up and see today. We had always thought that perhaps the larder  may have been built onto the house from stone robbed from ‘ the old cellar house’. If they are the same it  will give us a clue to what the whole row of mullions might have looked like. Could the design of the mullion also give us an approximate date to what we hope is Whitle Bank?
