2010 - excavation of the line

Volunteers from Waterway Recovery Group, watched by a member of the City Archaeologist department, carried out a sample dig and uncovered the extant wash wall as well as analysing the content of the in-fill of the canal.

A search for the narrow boat Elizabeth established that it was not actually buried on the site. (It is now thought that the boat was taken away from the site in the 1980s.)
