On March 26th 2009, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief during trenching adjacent to the Ashmolean Museum, Beaumont Street, Oxford (NGR: SP 5118 0654). The work was commissioned by Oxfordshire Highways as part of new trenching for new kerbing and drains. The watching brief revealed a well constructed stone built cess pit with a stone arched roof and an access passageway leading off to the east. The feature was sealed by deposits producing 18th/early 19th dating evidence. No other significant archaeology was observed.
