Notes about this historic site

1 The remains of a cobbled road were found during water main renewal works. Three sherds of 17th century German stoneware were recovered from a layer of charcoal above the cobbles and this in turn was capped by demolition material. It is suggested that this sequence represents the great fire of 1694 and susequent levelling.
