Alternative Title
1992.170 Gas Pipe, Castle Museum
Description
Mainly modern material was observed in a contractor's trench, but some structures of archaeological interest were recorded. Two narrow walls of coursed limestone were separated from a much thicker wall by an area of limestone rubble. All three were sealed by a layer of silty sand which was cut by the foundation trench of a later wall of large grit stone blocks. The grit stone wall aligned with the known position of the Victorian prison.
