Description

Trench 3 was located on the top of the former station platform. It revealed a complex sequence of Roman structures, some of which are almost certainly associated with the baths complex recorded during the construction of the railway station. These were cut directly into the natural, and were overlain by deposits associated with the construction of the platform. The Roman structures were found approximately 900mm below the modern ground surface.
