In November 1997 OA undertook a watching brief on the proposed site of the Said Business School, during the excavation of seven test pits, two shallow test pits and three boreholes. Natural gravel was seen in all of the seven test pits and their sections displayed overlying silts and clays below dumped material, black ash and clinker associated with the previous functions of the site as both a rail yard, coal yard and city rubbish dump. None of the deposits seen produced any finds, with the exception of TP6 which produced assorted Victoriana from its primary deposit. None of the excavations impacted upon the buried remains of Rewley Abbey.
Corrected grid reference is SP506064
