Description

Site code: FIY10. The archaeological watching brief carried out at 23 Fishergate, York identified probable Victorian cellarage fronting on to Kent Street which runs east/west along the southern boundary of the site. The cellars were constructed of red, un-frogged, brick bonded with lime mortar. The cellar infill contained modern, 20th century, material indicating that they were backfilled and the houses demolished shortly before the construction of the warehouse that until recently occupied the site. The groundworks were not deep enough to impact on any archaeological features or deposits, if present.
