During the construction of an extension to a warehouse in this area in 1950 numerous skeletons and some medieval pottery sherds were discovered. In addition, the excavations cut through a medieval wall. These are all thought to be evidence of the Greyfriars monastery (NHER 373), situated in this area during the medieval period.
