NS 574 652 (centre) Trial trenching was carried out in March 2002 on a site intended for development at the N end of Elliot Street. The work showed that the Verreville Pottery, established in the early 19th century, survived in the W part of the site, albeit much disturbed by modern activity. An important collection of ceramics was recovered during the evaluation, including ceramic patterns not previously identified as Verreville.
