Abstract

In the autumn of 1997 OA maintained a watching brief on the re-siting of a sewer inspection chamber adjacent to St. Frideswide's Bridge, Botley Road, Oxford. There appears to have been a modified or reused culvert at depth on the north side of the present bridge. The date of the construction of the culvert is unclear, although a fragment of glass may suggest that it was in-situ in the post-med period and this may accord with Wood's suggestion that there was a stone bridge here by 1674.
