Archaeology Notes

NJ90NW 280 941 062

The development of the St Nicholas Triangle has permitted an assessment to be made of an area adjacent to St Nicholas Church, the Green and Netherkirkgate. The area on Parson Gordon's map of 1661 contained both St Thomas' Hospital (NJ90NW 47; 1459) and The House of Correction (1636). Much of the area was disturbed by 18th and 19th-century activity and many features if this date were recorded. Under the Church Hall on St Nicholas Lane, however, the bottoms of three medieval pits were excavated. No other activity of that date remained, but the medieval topography the area has been clarified.
