Archaeology Notes

NO60NW 40.01 613 076.

Excavations in the garden of 5 Rumford revealed covered, lined-and- floored drains, earlier drains, a sealed-off well and various modern features. There was a considerable depth of soil and pottery; glass and animal bone were found in this. A large pit also contained some fish bones, as did the drains. No structures of early date were located. Two cottages were built on part of the site in the 18th century. This area was formerly the Market Place, before it was moved to its present site.
