NS 8148 4633 (centred on) A watching brief was undertaken on 14 March 2012 during the excavation of trenches for new signs. The deposits recorded in most of the trenches indicated that the area W of the castle had been heavily landscaped in the modern period. There was some indication that older landscaping features may underlie these deposits and a surface of laid stone recorded in one trench may merit further investigation.
