Medieval Boundary Ditch, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon

Description of this historic site

A Medieval ditch was found during archaeological work in Church Street, Stratford on Avon. The ditch was probably the boundary of a tenement.

Notes about this historic site

1 A ditch running parallel to Scholars Lane and whose NNE edge must virtually coincide with the edge of the roadway, represents the boundary of the tenement. May date to the Medieval period but was backfilled by the end of the 18th century and replaced by the brick wall which still stands. A series of 18th century flat bottomed gullies was also found, probably representing some form of bedding within a garden.
