Significance of the results: Neg

Summary. A watching brief was carried out during the excavation of a trench to replace a stretch of wall which forms the north boundary of the car park of Grey Friars Adult Community College. The trench did not disturb any features of archaeological interest. Unlike the evaluation trench of 2003 (CAT Report 219), the trench did reach natural ground. Therefore any features relating to the medieval friary or earlier buildings should have been exposed if they survive here. It may be that the site of the friary buildings does not extend as far north as the northern edge of the car park.
