Title:   Bedrock cutting under Road 6 by Stoa Pier 1
Category:   Pit
Description:   This cutting was filled in at the time Road 6 was laid. Homogeneous dumped fill.
This deposit represents fill which was brought in at the time Road 6 at the west end of the Middle Stoa was laid to fill in a deep gully which had formed in the earlier road, Road 7. It remains uncertain whether the gully was natural or whether it was partially manmade as a southern continuation of the Great Drain which was never finished.
