The clients received permission to renovate and modify a standing structure at The Bridge, Thomastown, with a monitoring condition attached. Two shallow foundation trenches were dug to accommodate new walls; the service trench for sewerage pipes was also dug. No archaeological features were found in any of the trenches.

It later transpired that the existing structure was demolished and replaced with a completely new building. No archaeological monitoring or testing took place, to my knowledge, in relation to the revised development.
