Long lost Salisbury Hall discovered beneath former stadium car park

In 1322, the Salisbury Manor was built in Walthamstow, a suburb of London. The manor burned in the 16th century and was replaced by a Tudor structure, but was also lost. Now a team of archaeologists from Archaeology South East have found Salisbury Manor  beneath a former car park for Walthamstow Stadium.

Also discovered on the property were prehistoric ditches used to divide sections of land. Artifacts unearthed ranged from medieval times through the Victorian period, and included pottery and roof tiles.
