Archaeological recording undertaken during development at 17 South Street in 2004 exposed a well constructed of mortar-bonded local stone at the east end of the site. The south side of the well had been truncated by an east to west aligned culvert with side walls of local stone capped with slate. To the north of the well was an area of white lime mortar containing crushed roof slate with vertically set slates aligned northwest to southeast.
