"Structure, wall and roofing -tiles, was found in the first half of the 19th century in the churchyard on the north side of St Cuthbert's Church Peaseholme Green … The tiles found in 1836 about 7ft down were said to be stacked … but an appearance of stacking can result from 'herring-bone' work or a roof collapse where the tiles retain their positions relative to one another in a fall. They included Sixth and Ninth Legion stamps." (SYO62) This has been interpreted by Monaghan as evidence which "points to tile production and storage in this area by both legions. "
