NY 0248 6576, NY 0252 6570 and NY 0253 6566 A watching brief was maintained 15–17 November 2010 during the excavation of three small trenches that were dug in order to locate a fault in a power cable. Only one trench revealed any deposits of archaeological interest (NY 0253 6566). These deposits included possible construction debris, an earlier ground surface and gravel layers, which may have related to the excavation and re-deposition of natural deposits during the construction of the castle moat.
