A small trial hole was excavated into the flower bed in the terrace of the old balcony of 'The Hole in the Wall' public house prior to its demolition for a new balcony. The hole was dug to confirm a number of points about the Balkerne Gate and adjacent deposits. Most of the area examined had been destroyed by a late 19th or 20th-century pit which may have been the result of the excavations of 1913-1917 (ECC622 and ECC623). Some stratified deposit had survived, however, particularly at the trenches northern end. The trench was at first confined to the flower bed but was later extended westwards to locate the blocking wall.<1>
