5m deep, orientated northwest-southeast, which contained brown fine gravelly sand and rootlets (OPT 785-6). Its western edge was truncated by another channel cutting from a higher level. 4m deep, Fig 12 15-35 Copthall Avenue, watching brief: section 17 Fig 13 15-35 Copthall Avenue, watching brief: section with two branches from the west and north meeting and flowing southwards (OPT 731). Within this channel lay brown fine gravels but more mixed organic clay deposits at its edges, the latter suggestive of flooding (OPT 711, 706, 705, 694, 703, 700, 692, 689, 675, 676, 673).

Many of the posts and post and plank alignments, some north-east to south-west, some east-west, must also have been the remains of revetted drainage channels cut into the dumps; one of these post alignments clearly marks the drain on the east side of Road 2 (Fig 68). It is quite possible that some of the east-west alignments were connected with the drainage network to the west.

A culvert through the defensive wall at the south end of Blomfield Street (Merrifield’s W31, Site 11) marks the position of this tributary in the Roman period and is consistent with the alignment of the prehistoric stream.
