Sandstone foundations and a mortar surface of a probable Romano-British building below Church Street, Alcester

Description of this historic site

Sandstone wall foundations were found in several trenches excavated along Church Street in Alcester during the laying of new gas pipes. They are probably the remains of at least one Romano-British building. A mortar floor surface was also found.

Notes about this historic site

1 Several sandstone wall foundations were noted in narrow gas pipe trenches. The location of the walls would not fit with the known medieval street plan and so it is likely that the walls were Romano-British in date. A mortar floor on a similar alignment was also found.
