On November 30th 2006 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an
archaeological excavation on the culvert leading to the Cold Bath at
Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire (NGR: SP 3628 2610). The work was
commissioned by Dubois Landscape Architects in order to determine the
condition of the structure. The excavation revealed that the portion of the
culvert running under the track had been replaced by modern salt glazed
pipes, the western end of the culvert was intact, that the eastern end of the
culvert was much further up the stream than anticipated and that it had
been subject to partial collapse and heavy silting.
