Tour of St Lawrence Church

24. Roman flooring
Areas of Roman herringbone brick flooring (opus spicatum) remain and a section of herringbone flooring can still be seen from the outside boiler house staircase, to the east of the south porch. The bricks (12cm x 8cm x 4cm) are set edgeways in pink Roman cement. The first south wall of the church sits on this flooring.
