Archaeological monitoring of groundworks associated with the erection of a block of flats. 0.5m of material was stripped fom the site. Piled foundations were used so there was little opportunity to observe buried deposits and only a single pit was identified. It contained the remains of six ceramic vessels likely to date to the 16th century and a bone assemblage comprising largely of cattle metapodials, possibly associated with bone working. The pit did not cut the natural subsoil but was entirely within the thick overburden present within the central town area and no natural subsoil was seen during any of the monitoring visits.
