Description

This archaeological evaluation was carried out in an area of open ground at the rear of Grape Lane and adjacent to Coffee Yard. The evaluation consisted of a single trench 3m square and 1.5m deep. The evaluation demonstrated the survival of deep intact stratified deposits dating from the Roman period to the 17th century. Eleven phases of activity were identified In 1781 a non-conformist chapel was built on the site by Mr Wren. The chapel became a warehouse in the mid-19th century and survived until 1965 when half of it was demolished. No deposits relating to the chapel were excavated during this evaluation.
