The site mainly comprised made up ground containing a 1m-thick layer of demolition rubble. This was generally loose in nature and was unstable, which resulted in accurate recording of archaeological remains being limited.

During the course of the watching brief, 16 base pits were excavated prior to filling with concrete to accommodate the new building. The remains of cellar walls made of handmade red brick were observed in in three of the base pits. One of these walls was plastered in a yellow material, but the other two walls exhibited a brown plaster on the single side exposed.
