During the redevelopment of Green Cottage a section was excavated across a visible bank. This showed that the bank, which is visible along almost the entire east side of Longtown, was a man-made feature, with a stone core, and although no finds were recovered, its stratigraphy is the same as a previously excavated section of the bank, which was positively dated to the medieval period, and is assumed to be the fourth bailey of the castle.
