Willow Place

Willow Place was a continuation of Willow Walk to the east of Fair Street. The south side of Willow Place was built upon Ropemaker's Close which was allotted to the College by the Barnwell Inclosure Award. The north side of Willow Place was part of the south verge of Newmarket Road and belonged to various owners.
The name survives to denote a passage leading to the service roads at the back of the Grafton Centre, but the site of these houses is now under the western car park

Worked Stone

A single worked stone fragment was recovered from a stratified context. This consisted of a fine-grained bluish grey vesicular quernstone fragment that is identifiable as Niedermendig Műlstein lava (also known as Rhenish or Mayen lava) from the Eifel region in Germany (Kars 1983). Although such querns were frequently used during the Roman period, and are common finds on Middle and Late Saxon sites, they are much rarer in the Medieval period as their use was controlled following the Norman Conquest and many people were instead compelled to use centrally regulated mills (Watts 2002, 38-42). Therefore, although it occurred residually in a later context, this example is likely to be pre-12th century in origin.
