Three trenches were constantly monitored, revealing a post-medieval wall that is thought to relate to buildings seen on early Ordnance Survey maps. Two undated layers were also recorded in Trench 3 and may indicate surviving occupation deposits, including an episode of burning. Various layers of modern or post-medieval construction debris and disturbance were identified throughout the trenches.
