Abstract:
Between the 9th and 10th November 2016 an archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Historic Royal Palaces located at the foot of Groom's House Gate, East Front, Hampton Court Palace. The gate forms an opening in the palisade separating the Great Fountain Garden from Home Park and the 20th Century Garden. Initially the top soil was removed from around the plinth stones, piers, backstays and the gate itself in order to view the architectural feature more clearly. However, further excavation was required to understand the full nature of the construction. A small trench was opened against the eastern side of the gate threshold and the northern plinth stone supporting the Tijou wrought-iron box pier. No archaeological features or remains were observed but the upper level of the brick foundation, the extent of the plinth stone structure and the base of the threshold were all recorded. The threshold of the gate was heavily disturbed and damaged by the growth of tree roots. Archaeological and historical evidence indicate that this gate was inserted in the early 18th century when the palisade was erected.
