Five cuttings were investigated along the Maiden St frontage. It was not possible to go any further back: the garden plots behind the cottages were stretching either below demolition rubble or were actually located at such a high level as to be inaccessible by the machine. It would appear that the ground for the cottages was levelled by cutting into the steep slope behind. In each of the cuts, natural deposits occurred below the demolition rubble. Nothing of archaeological interest was noted.
