Notes about this historic site

1 Evaluation work in advance of development to Polesworth Library. Trial trenching revealed no surviving archaeology that can be associated with either the Anglo-Saxon or later Benedictine nunnery in this location. A layer of ceramic tiles that were discovered are likely to be contemporary with 17th century or early 18th century development of the area.
