Trial trench evaluation was carried out on the site of a proposed residential development which was located within the precint of the Dominican Priory (SUY005). Three trenches were excavated representing approx 2% of the total area of the development site and 7% of the area of the proposed new buildings. The trenches were excavated to a depth of 1.65m-2.5m. The river terrace deposits within the site have been truncated to considerable depths, this was especially so in the areas of Trenches 1 and 2 in the northern half of the site. Quarrying of sand and gravel seems a likely explanation with thick deposits of fill that overlay the truncated natural strata representing deliberate backfillinf and ground consolidation (S1).
