A watching brief was held during the construction of a two-storey building at the rear of 37-8 St John's Street. The northern frontage of the new building was built over the remains of the Roman town wall. This was damaged during construction work when it was partly undermined by a trench dug too near to it. The exposed section of the wall appeared to be only core (on the south side).<1>
