Abstract

Archaeological recording during the groundworks for the construction of a new dwelling on the site formerly occupied by no. 10 Priory Road (TL 3146/7103) revealed post-medieval dump deposits. These represent a deliberate attempt to consolidate the edge of the 'Old River', a channel of the Great Ouse. Water-front remains pertaining to the medieval Priory might be anticipated in the vicinity; perhaps just below or to the north of the investigated trench.
