The site is within an archaeologically sensitive zone, lying along the southern edge of the historic medieval and post-medieval settlement of Coleraine town. In particular, the site lies within the immediate vicinity of the projected southern limits of the 17th-century town citadel.

No archaeological deposits were identified within the test-trenches, other than late 19th- or early 20th-century red-brick and concrete buildings and stone walls. The construction of these buildings is likely to have severely impacted upon any subsurface archaeological deposits which may have survived.
