Archaeologists dig into history of Winchester fire station

Archaeologists have been busy in Winchester delving into the past before development again covers it over. At the fire station, the foundations and walls of an ancient building has been found only a few feet under the yard.

A service spokesman said: “A second dig had been due but we are postponing that until the site is vacated so the archaeologists won’t have fire service operations going on around them. They have uncovered something but we don’t know what it is yet. It hasn’t come as a surprise as the site is within the medieval walls.”
