Notes about this historic site

1 1965. Beside Guillaume’s Factory, S of the Stratford Road, some machine cut trenches showed traces of timber buildings in alignment with a N-S V-shaped ditch, the filling of which was dated to the early C2. The ditch was 1.2m deep. Further S and near to the E-W Roman road previously sectioned by Hughes, two trenches were cut which showed at least two periods of massive stone building with a hypocaust, and a date range of C3-4.
