Summary. The excavations and watching brief showed that the building works did not have any impact on archaeological remains. Either excavations took place where the ground had previously been heavily disturbed or they were not deep enough to reach buried remains. The fills of the trenches mainly consisted of modern made-up ground, fill for drain trenches or brick foundations and rubble.
