Description

Trench 5 was excavated to the rear of the war memorial. This trench contained a small area of medieval deposits, the top of which lay 1.15m below the modern ground surface. These deposits were a total of 0.30m thick and appear to represent the remains of insubstantial buildings. The majority of this trench was occupied by features associated with the railway station construction and use, including an in-situ length of railway track.
