Excavation in Trichay Street in 1972

The view shows the excavation of the back yards of houses on Trichay Street. The holes represent medieval rubbish and cess pits, wells and industrial features dug into the yards over the late Saxon, Norman and medieval periods. Almost the entire area has been disturbed, and cess and rubbish must have contaminated the water taken from the wells here.
