Stert Street

An excavation was carried out on a vacant plot in Stert Street, now the Job Centre, in 1975 and 1976. Remains of medieval and post-medieval buildings, and pits and a well of the same date, were found, along with much pottery. Other finds included the skeleton of an infant, Roman pottery and coins, and an ice-skate made from the bone of a horse.
