Watching Brief (7 July 2011)

NT 5483 3432 A watching brief was maintained on 7 July 2011 during the excavation of a test pit at Melrose Abbey Priory Farm, located on the E face of the E courtyard wall towards its S end. The purpose of the trench was to examine the wall footing of this section of the courtyard wall, in the hope of shedding light on the cause of a pronounced lean to the E in the masonry of the wall. The compact and stable nature of the deposits seen indicated that the problems were caused by structural issues rather than any subsidence.
