Pegg, F., 2010, Archaeological Monitoring and Recording at Great Potheridge House, Merton (Report - Watching Brief). SDV347464.

Monitoring of groundworks for a drying shed revaled the remains of two brick walls, a maximum of two courses high, running closely paralled to each other in a north-west to south-east direction. Althought the same generic style solid un-frogged brick was used in both walls, the bonding pattern was dissimilar. This was interpreted as a re-facing of an earlier wall.
Interpreted as part of an L-shaped range of farm buildings shown on plans dating from around 1866.
