Author: Cai Mason
A programme of archaeological work was undertaken by Bristol and Region Archaeological Services (BaRAS) prior to, and during, the construction of a new student residential accommodation-building at No. 9 Pipe Lane and No. 42 Frogmore Street, Bristol (NGR ST 5846 7299). The archaeological work revealed evidence of early 16th-century quarrying and the remains of a large early 17th-century building, which was later used as an eye hospital. Several 18th- and 19th-century extensions to the building, and the remains of a second early 18th-century building, were also recorded.
