Testing and assessment was undertaken at a site bounded by St Mary's graveyard and a section of the town wall. A series of test trenches was excavated which showed a high build-up of post-medieval deposits, down to a depth of 1.8m. Excavation below this level did not occur as it was beyond the reach of the mini-digger.
