Allan, J. + Neophytou, M., 2006, Archaeological assessment of a building to the rear of 24 St Lawrence Lane, Ashburton, 1 (Report - Assessment). SDV347226.

Brief survey of the single storey building to the rear of 24 St Lawrence Lane, including phase plans of the structure and documentary research to inform a planning application to convert this structure, previously referred to (incorrectly) as a barn, into a dwelling. The earliest phase of this building dates to the late 18th / early 19th century and it appears to have had an industrial or agricultural function, as it was open to one side on the front of the ground floor and the upper floor was a light timber construction.

Tingle, M., 2012, Historic Building Recording at The Old Armoury, 24 St Lawrence Lane, Ashburton (Report - Assessment). SDV359774.

Historic building recording to inform the renovation of the property. The principal object of this examination was to determine whether there was any evidence of previously existing windows that had been concealed by the asbestos cladding. None was present although it was possible to say that the window on the second floor that had been replaced, had been slightly larger than its modern successor.
