A group of postholes and metal hooks
A group of postholes and metal hooks (81844)
A group of rock cut postholes and metal hooks, suggestive of a canopy or shelter perhaps associated with the use of two nearby rock cut bathing pools. There are approximately 9 rock cut postholes of varying size and approximately 25 iron hooks in varying degrees of good and broken condition. The postholes were arranged in two lines and a larger on in the middle. The metal hooks were arranged around the postholes, so were likely used to tie down a shelter.
It has been suggested that this is linked to the 2nd Earl Grey's family who owned the nearby bathing house and rock cut bathing pools.
