Notes about this historic site

1 In 1975 a trial trench was cut along the length of the plot extending between Stratford Road and Gas House Lane. Roman deposits were encountered at 1.2m below the surface. The uppermost Roman level was a cobbled surface with postholes and pits. A very small trial hole established that these deposits were 0.23m thick. No further excavation was done as the Roman material is below the level of disturbance by the development proposed for the site.
