Source/Archive record SYO2212 - Castle Car Park Boreholes

Title Castle Car Park Boreholes
Date/Year 1997


Seven boreholes were observed in this area, four of which encountered structural obstructions which were interpreted as likely to have been parts of the walls or foundations of the Victorian prison. In two of the boreholes organic silty deposits and a series of clays and silts were recorded. These boreholes may have been sampling material from the castle ditch and/or from within the river system of the Foss.
