Summary. A large garage 8.1m x 7.16m in size was being built on the site of a demolished smaller Garage, the site lies between Lexden Road and St Clare Road, and occupies an area of rich archaeology. Two visits were made on the 10th of October 2000 and virtually all the footings were monitored. No features were observed nor finds, other than modern pottery, peg-tile and animal bone. The soil in the eastern end had been heavily disturbed by the garage slab and tree-root activity. The soil on the western side had been less disturbed by building but roots extended down to 1m down.
