Abstract:
Norvic Archaeology was commissioned by Michael Johnson of National Grid Gas, on behalf of the Dean and Chapter of Norwich Cathedral, to undertake archaeological monitoring of gas pipe trench work at No.53 The Close, Norwich. Cartographic evidence demonstrates that the general layout of the present range of buildings on the north side of the Lower Close has varied little since the 1700s. The range of buildings which includes No.53 date from the 15th century onwards and are known to incorporate 13th century arcading (to the rear of No. 55), which may relate to a medieval granary. No. 53 is notable in that it is a much later 19th century rebuild, necessitated by the collapse of the original house. A trench located against the front wall of the property encountered make-up deposit of building rubble rich in flint and mortar lumps, which presumably relates to this event. Three trenches located at the front boundary of the property and the footpath revealed late 19th-century to early 20th century cobbled surfaces buried below a variety of make-up layers, including crushed mortar, sands and cinder waste.
