Text D. Evans and K. Saunders excavated four trenches within the area of a proposed footpath, in order to locate the remains of the 13th-century Portwall. The presence of a late 13th- to 14th-century clay deposit probably indicates the location of a berm, suggesting that the Portwall lay to the north of the evaluation trenches and under the present alignment of Portwall Lane.
