Excavations at Linen Street

Description of this historic site

Archaeological excavations in Linen Street, Warwick, discovered a brick lined well which may date to the Imperial period. It may have been associated with Victorian hosues which stood on the site. Several massive sandstone walls of unknown date were also found.

Notes about this historic site

1 1976: Development of a vacant lot on the N side of Linen Street led to the discovery of several archaeological features. A brick-lined well was located, probably associated with the Victorian terraced houses previously on the site. Study of the foundation trenches for new buildings showed that there had been no occupation prior to the 20th century on most of the site. In the NW corner, however, several massive sandstone walls were uncovered, but no date can be given for them.
