Monument record MCC2125 - Roman road, crossing Fitzwalter Road, Colchester
|Grid reference||TL 97716 24903 (point)|
|Non Parish Area||COLCHESTER, COLCHESTER, ESSEX|
Type and Period (1)
A Roman Road was observed in Fitzwalter Road, the alignment and route of this road is not known other than it appears to run east-west.
P.G. Laver notes in his diary, 'When laying a water main along the west side of Fitzwalter Road a cambered road of gravel was revealed opposite Mr D.W. Clarke's House. It lay 2ft 6" below the surface and was 18ft wide. The centre line (of the part exposed) was 15ft S of the boundary wall between Messrs Lazell and Clarke. The subsoil was gravel'.<1><2>
Note that the location is likely to be located further to the north, based on Laver's description on the line of the project Roman road (MCC1928).
