Summary

An archaeological monitoring was undertaken during the excavation of footings for a garage on the southern side of 28 Friary Meadow. The development was located within the precinct of the medieval Babwell Friary and was approximately 17m north of the excavated site of the friary church. Two parallel walls were exposed forming a corridor with a tiled floor which may have been part of a cloister to the north of the church. A third wall was also identified and was part of a structure to the west. A heavily disturbed external cobbled surface was also identified to the north and west of the walls. All structural remains were left preserved in situ by the developer.
