A watching brief was held during groundwork for the construction of a disabled toilets extension to the public convenience block. The extension to the north side of the block involved excavation of 0.7m wide wall trenches to a depth of 1m. The lowest 0.25m of the trench contained a very dark soil which may represent the fill of the town ditch. This was sealed by a 0.55m deep deposit of sandy loam overlain by modern asphalt.<1>
