South Shields, Coronation Street, Roman stones
Stones displaying Lewis holes (for the lifting devices of Roman cranes), chisel facing and drill holes were noticed by the Northern Archaeology Group decorating the roundabout at the junction of Mill Dam, Commercial Road, Station Road, Coronation Street and Ferry Street in 1998. Several dozen similar stones border the flowerbeds at one side of the carpark in Coronation Street.
