Notes about this historic site

1 Archaeological observation of a foundation trench uncovered slight building foundations and a quantitiy of 12th/13th century pottery. The building foundation was probably associated with an outbuilding fronting on to Bleachfield, possibly during the medieval period.
2 A copper alloy fragment, which may have come from a medieval strap end (or just possibly from a section of Roman scale armour), was recovered during the construction of a rear extension to 18 Bleachfield Street, Alcester.
