A medieval abbey wall has been unearthed in the West Midlands of England.

The well-preserved section of wall, which is more than 650 years-old, was discovered by archaeologist Jamie Wilkins from Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service in March whilst construction work was being carried out.

Abbot William de Chyryton ordered the wall to be built between 1317 and 1344 and it originally ran from the Almonry Museum, across the south side of Merstow Green and down what is now Boat Lane to meet the River Avon.
