This work ties in with investigations carried out by OA East on the adjacent library building in 2008/2009. There, evidence of a large ditch-like feature, partly infilled with sterile deposits but with an organic water-logged primary fill was recorded in Trench 2. This feature is believed to represent a defensive ditch associated with the castle on a different alignment to the known position of the post-medieval castle moat. Evidence of the continuation of this feature with the same sequence of fills was recorded in this investigation.
