NJ 221 631 Archaeological monitoring was undertaken in February 2004 while a service trench was excavated to the W of the Bishop's House. The trench followed the W wall of the building, starting at the boundary wall to the N and running into the SW part of the structure at its S end. A stone-built drainage culvert was discovered, clearly pre-dating the standing building, and may well be part of the original cathedral layout.
