In 1922, during alterations of the premises of the Oxford University Press, the internal side of two pieces of the wall was uncovered ; the northern fragment had been robbed of its facing, but the face of the southern was largely intact, showing a double bonding-course with four courses of squared rag-stone above and below it.
