Six boreholes were dug at this site located south of the River Poddle which formed the Castle moat here. Evidence for dumping in the medieval period was exposed in the borehole closest to the Poddle. The others were located on higher ground to the south and showed evidence for re-deposition of boulder clay during the building of 19th-century sheds.
