Full Description

SK 48006517. In 1969 human skeletal remains were found at Rowthorne Lane, Ault Hucknall, during the laying of a sewer pipe trench. H C Lane reports that the bones are thought to represent adult males. There were no associated finds. Extension of the trench to the south resulted in the finding of further skeletal remains by Lane and a wall fragment of glazed pottery thought to be no later than 17th century. The tithe apportionment roll of 1839 names one parcel of land (no. 718) Chapel Yard. It seems that the chapel of Rowthorne, recorded in the Valor Ecclesiasticus of 1535 was located hereabouts, although Cox states that "there does not now appear to be even a tradition of its former existence."
