Medieval manor house excavated at Netherne. The excavations identified several phases of construction, the earliest dating to the second quarter of the 13th century. Small bowl furnaces and pit hearths for iron smelting and forging were also identified. In about 1270 the house was replaced by a timber-framed aisled hall. A timber-framed house was also constructed, apparently for a smith. Ironworking was carried out until the abandonment of the site in the mid-14th century. In the late 15th/early 16th century the smith's house was refurbished and sheds, stables, outhouses and a large forge were built. Two small kilns were constructed, probably for the manufacture of roof tiles for the buildings.
