(6) . Southend (formerly Blackwall) Railway, South. In the course of demolitions for the Blackwall Railway in 1841, a portion of the Roman wall was uncovered 7 1/2 feet thick and standing to a height of 6 or 7 feet. It had a double course of bricks surmounted by five courses of squared stone, and a double bonding-course carried through the wall. The wood-cut shows also two stone below the lower courses of brick and three above the higher.
