During his excursion to the Wall in 1807, Dr. John Lingard was told by Mrs. Buddle "that in digging a cellar under the dining room of Mr. Buddle's house, a deep well was found with great quantities of bones, and horns of animals of the ox, stag and boar kinds in it...". John Buddle's house (Wallsend House) lay just within the west wall of the fort.
