If you've been past Worcester Cathedral in the last month you'll probably have seen our archaeologists working away, uncovering the remains of the properties that once stood either side of Lich Street. This was, before the construction of College Street in the early 19th century, the main thoroughfare into the city centre from the south and east, linking Friar Street to the south end of the High Street.
Excavation in progress. Lich Street can be seen crossing the site from centre-right to bottom-left of the image
The topsoil and rubble has now all been removed, and our staff are now carefully exposing the structures and deposits by hand.
