Full Description

Following the excavation of trenches for a garden wall and house foundation, an arched brick culvert was revealed. This consisted of clamp bricks (c. 18th/early 19th century date) which were bonded with lime mortar into a rudimentary arch. It was recorded and then retained in situ. It had apparently been replaced by a modern 10" diameter earthenware drain 0.5m to the north-east. (1)
