NJ 589 571 A watching brief was maintained in January 2003 while two small squares were excavated in the ground floor of the W wing of the building, now known as Castle of Park, in order to insert new roof supports. The mansion originated in 1292, was rebuilt as a Z-plan tower house in 1563, was extended in 1723, and again in the 19th century. A small section of stone flag flooring was uncovered in the square on the S side of the room, which pre-dated the 19th-century extension. No other archaeological features or finds were evident.
