During December 1999 a programme of cable trenching was undertaken by local contractors under archaeological supervision by Kirkdale Archaeology. The project consisted of cutting a trench along the east access road from a point to the southeast of the fort at the edge of the glacis to a point within the fort near the north entrance to the south sallyport. Within the confines of the south sallyport the new trench followed the exact line of the old water main with the result that all the layering was backfill from that period. The variable depth of the water pipe at the south entrance to the tunnel might indicate some form of masonry threshold below. <1> No further information.
