Three more burials under the pavement on the north side of the road were found with 4th c. pottery in 1956. (1-3) The 1956 burials were found when a G.P.O. cable was laid at the S junction of Beech Hill and Bridge Hill at TR 18535396: the pottery which included two 4th c. jugs, has been retained by Mr. Jenkins.
