Full description

1978. Norwich Corrugated Board Ltd.
A series of trenches, 2.5m wide x 2m deep were dug around the north and east sides of existing storeyard to support piles for a new warehouse.
The corner of a flint rubble walled building was seen in the section on the east side.
The mortar was yellow, sandy and so may have been medieval.
There was no dating evidence otherwise. If medieval it should have been part of St Pauls Hospital.
M. Atkin (NCM).
