Nine small exploratory slot trenches were excavated by hand adjacent to Hardwick Old Hall. They were placed to cross or align with the proposed course of a BT cable duct trench. At the southern end of a grassed area c. 75m south of the Old Hall a possible stone wall and stone-lined culvert were found, the former apparently sealed by a remnant soil. It was suggested that it may represent remains pre-dating the building activity of the 1580s. (1)
