Full Description

Evidence of 18th or 19th century buildings and features were uncovered during trial trenching carried out in 2018. 'These features likely represent the demolition of former residential houses that once fronted Derwent Street, which were demolished as part of expansive 20th factory redevelopment. The houses are visible on OS mapping as late as c1971.' A 19th century brick-build culvert was also identified on a north - south alignment. (1)
