|Sheffield Castle excavations recorded by J.B. Himsworth. Moat under castle gateway, A. Leslie Armstrong believed the water to be stagnant, however, Himsworth was convinced it was fed by a stream running under High Street|
|J. B. Himsworth|
This appears to be the deepest part of the moat, and quantities of 'finds' unusually large. Coins and counters with papal signs thereon, shoes, mostly lady's, stag antlers, goat's horns and bones, lots of pottery. At this spot the moat appears to have been thirty feet wide, and the lowest sludge about thirty feet below Exchange Street level. Taken from 'Sheffield Castle Excavations', by J.B. Himsworth, Ref: 914.274 SQ.
