1–2 Sketch section and site notes.
3 Construction of a garage in Station Road in 1981 led to salvage recording which identified a rough sandstone foundation. A pit or ditch with a possiblly associated gravel layer(s) were also located. Although no dateable evidence was recovered, the gravel layer(s) and ditch/pit may represent a road edge, possibly that of the Ryknild Street. Almost certainly not Ryknield Street.
