Full Description

Archaeological monitoring at the rear of 32 St Andrew's Street South found evidence for a chimney foundation (only one course was evident, at the top of the surviving level, comprising six bricks set in stretcher bond) which was contemporary with the construction of the property (late 17th/early 18thC). Also evidence for 'cut' features, but it was not possible to determine whether they were of archaeological or geological origin. A fragment of architectural moulded stone was collected by the builders. The stone is most likely to have formed part of the upper element of a large arched window, decorated with a wide roll of possible ogee moulding. The combination of stone type and the decorative elements suggest that it belongs to the decorated or perpendicular architectural style, and that is dates to around the middle of the 14th century (S1).
