On November 30th 2006 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological excavation on the culvert leading to the Cold Bath at Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire (NGR: SP 3628 2610). The work was commissioned by Dubois Landscape Architects in order to determine the condition of the structure. The excavation revealed that the portion of the culvert running under the track had been replaced by modern salt glazed pipes, the western end of the culvert was intact, that the eastern end of the culvert was much further up the stream than anticipated and that it had been subject to partial collapse and heavy silting.
