The Undercrofts of Westgate Street, Gloucester - new report published

An important research report on the medieval undercrofts of Westgate Street, Gloucester has been published by Historic England. The work was undertaken as part of the Cathedral Quarter Project. The full report, authored by Rebecca Lane and Abigail Lloyd, can be downloaded in pdf format from the Historic England website here.

“In Westgate Street there are three early and well-preserved undercrofts, which potentially date to the late 12th century. These have been investigated in detail and the findings presented here. Further examples of other cellar structures of later date situated on Westgate Street have also been examined. The report concludes with an assessment of the street in the context of the rest of Gloucester and of some of the other English towns that have been previously noted for their undercrofts.”
