Description

Pavement works in 1986/87 on St Leonard's Place to provide a new bus lay-by revealed a fragment of the fortress wall. The wall had been cut away to allow the pavement and roadway construction but remained intact beneath them. The fragment suggested that most of the facing stones had been robbed away but parts of the tile courses also seen on the Multangular Tower were intact. Rampart levels also appeared to survive but were not investigated (INTERIM 12/2).
