Historic pottery unearthed

17.01.23
We've unearthed a piece of stamped pottery from the Southsea Baths & Assembly Rooms, dating back to 1871! The find was made in the backfill of a SSE duct pit, just outside our Long Curtain Moat site boundary near the Brewers' Fayre pub, so it would appear that the Baths & Assembly Rooms existed where the pub and Premier Inn are now located. We are pleased to have Wessex Archaeology on site to advise us on such finds and also thank our ground workers from Volkerstevin who made the discovery. Read more about the history of the buildings.
