The changing face of Stafford
The changing face of Stafford
The Tipping Street car park has been closed and archaeological surveys are being carried out pending the development of a new complex of County Council Buildings. This picture shows what are probably the cellars of houses around Apple Tree Court - one of the courtyards that grew up behind the facades of many C18th and C19th town streets. Each house in such a court would have probably have housed several families or a family and lodgers and were where many of the working class people of the day lived.
The darker earth areas being excavated may be old rubbish pits.
