Medieval or Post Medieval street surface at Pillerton Priors

Description of this historic site

A hard packed stone and pebble street surface dating to the Medieval or Post Medieval Period and a former rear property boundary were recorded at Oberon, Pillerton Priors.

Notes about this historic site

1 Archaeological observation during the excavation of foundation trenches for a new conservatory revealed a hard packed stone and pebble surface probably belonging to a medieval or post-medieval street. The street would have run through the southern side of the village and was replaced during the 18th century. A ditch containing 19th century pottery belonged to the former rear property boundary, which would have also marked the north edge of the street.
