Notes about this historic site

1 Foundation trenches for three small extensions to the rear of Gramer Almshouses were observed in May 1983. Five features were recorded. There were two timber slots running roughly E-W, the other three probably pits, though none was well-defined or very substantial. No finds were recovered but the nature and fill of these features suggest that they belong to the Roman military period.
