Summary. A watching brief was carried out at the Territorial Army Centre in January 2001, during ground works for a new building and car park. All the material excavated by the contractor consisted of modern made-up ground. Natural ground was not reached except in the northern area where a modern Army trench was dug out and concrete foundations were exposed. One fragment of Roman tile and one piece of Roman grey ware pottery were the only finds.In short, the investigation produced negative results due partly to disturbance of the ground by Victorian buildings and partly to the fact that archaeological levels were not reached.
