Monument record MYO2162 - Building under Railway Offices


Building with heavy gritstone façade and various architectural fragments were found in 1901 during preparatory excavations for the former Railway Offices (MYO710) in Tanner Row. They were as follows: (a) Wall, remains of a façade parallel to and about 30 ft back from main Roman street (MYO XXXX), 3 ft thick and composed of gritstone blocks 3ft by 2 ft by 1.5 ft. The ragment stood 5 ft high and was 9 ft long. Other remains discovered of walls 1 ft thick and standing two courses high in worked stone were probably of internal divisions behind the foregoing. The building extended back at least 50ft and was more than 30ft wide. An earlier stone-lined well 3.5ft in diameter was underneath one of the fragments of walling (MYOXXXX).
