Possible RB Ditch at Gramer's Almshouses

Description of this historic site

A Roman ditch was recorded during an excavation. It was situated 50m west of Mancetter Road, Mancetter.

Notes about this historic site

1 The work of installing the gas main to the Almshouses involved excavating small trenches along the route to allow pipe insertion. Seven trenches were opened. Only in trench 2 was there any indication of archaeology, this could possibly be a ditch of which only one side was encountered and may be an extension of the one found in 1984, WA 4632. There were no finds.
