Notes about this historic site

1 Archaeological observation during the construction of seven new houses recorded a small, stone-lined (limestone), well close to the street frontage. This may have been early 19th century in date as the house it was associated with appears on the OS map of 1828. The well itself is indicated on the 1887 map. A small amount of late 19th century pottery along with a copper alloy knife blade and a copper alloy button polisher were retrieved from the wellÂ’s fill.
