An archaeological evaluation was carried out prior to the construction of a spa with a basement, as well as garden landscaping. Two trenches were excavated within two small areas of garden to the rear of the Swan premises. The first trench covered 23.9sqm and was 1.8m wide and 14.4m long, whilst trench 2 was 0.75sqm and measured 0.5m wide x 1.5m long. The upmost archaeological levels in Trench 1 were encountered between 0.3m and 0.44m below the existing ground level. Three sondages were excavated in trench 1. These sondages revealed features, some of which survived up to and beyond 1.16m below ground level (S1).
