A watching brief was held along the High Street during the installation of a gas main down the length of the street. The watching brief recorded several wall foundations and also burials on the site of St Runwald's Church and a succession of layers of gravel street metalling. Three north-south wall foundations were observed which were thought to form part of the same group observed by Hull. The foundations are thought to be medieval or post-medieval and one of them close to the line of the west boundary of 134 High Street was probably part of the east wall of St Runwald's Church.<1>
