1955-1956: Excavations on the site of Martins Bank by Alan Aberg revealed Middle Saxon stamp decorated and Late Saxon pottery, with bone skates etc, also pottery of 13th to 17th Century as well as mammal, bird and fish remains (S2).
1957: Alliance Building development, observed by G W L Jarvis and H E P Spencer for IPSMG. Nature of excavations made accurate recording and findspots difficult to record, but a line of pits or probable "continuous trench" (ditch?) at least 21 feet long was noted as were at least 5 inhumations uncovered "lying at different angles and at different depths". Further features noted include a well containing Medieval to 19th Century material and possible wattle and daub remains. Listed finds include further human and animal bones, various finds of pottery, "an iron ? Blade" and glass (S1-S6).
