Ryknild Street - RR 18C

Hob Uid: 929354
Location :
Staffordshire
East Staffordshire
Branston
Grid Ref : SK2301021930
Summary : Surviving agger of Roman road and probable cropmark of road mapped from air photographs.
More information : Ryknild Street at Bean's Covert. (Taken from annotations on large scale map strips with Linear Archive File RR 18c)

(SK 2284 2170 - SK 2287 2175) "Ploughed down agger as gravelly ridge 18m wide and 0.3m high across ploughed field."

(SK 2294 2183 - SK 2301 2193) "Agger survives through copse averaging 10m wide and 0.5m high."
Surveyed at 1:2500 (1)

(SK 2284 2170 - SK 2287 2175) Slight ridge across playing field.
(SK 2294 2183 - SK 2301 2193) No change. (2)


The agger (between SK 2284 2170 - SK 2287 2175) described by
authorities 1 and 2 was not seen on good quality APs. However,
cropmarks of four ditches on slightly different alignments (with a
maximum length of 142m) were seen. These probably represent flanking
ditches of the road which may have been recut, hence the differing
alignments.
Centred at:-SK 2283 2170
(Morph No. FR.86.19.1) (3)
