HY 3811 2684 A watching brief was maintained on 31 October 2006 while contactors dug two small test pits and drilled four boreholes near the W side of the existing visitor centre situated in the far NW corner of the guardianship area surrounding the site, in advance of the planned extension to the visitor centre. As expected, the two test pits only revealed an area of modern disturbance associated with the foundations of the visitor centre and related services. The soil and bedrock encountered in the boreholes did not indicate the presence of anything other than natural deposits. Nothing of archaeological significance was noted and no finds were retained.
