Description

WH Smiths site investigated 1974. In the back garden of 37 Coney St 3 small trenches were investigated due to the large costs involved for an open excavation. The one closest to the riverside revealed a post-medieval wall possibly a slipway. The central area revealed a complex of brick walls on rubble foundations dating to the 18-19th centuries and a medieval wall immediately beneath the concrete covering. Two trenches were opened in the cellars of no39 which showed that medieval layers had been removed with the construction of the cellar. Beneath the modern pavement Roman layers had been cut away by a large medieval pit which produced Roman material. The Roman road surface was revealed in the cellar along with buildings presumed to be granaries. This is likely the same as EYO4897 - see that event too.
