Abstract:
In April 2016 a project aimed at replacing the bicycle posts situated by the entrance to the Works Yard on Tennis Court Lane, Hampton Court Palace required mitigation works during the excavation of a series of 15 small trenches measuring 0.3m x 0.3m. No archaeological features, other than rubble deposits were encountered in the five western-most trenches. However, the second line of trenches (F-J) situated to the east of the Works Yard entrance revealed the presence of a red-brick surface. In order to determine the extent of the archaeological remains and to try to establish a new location for the posts, trenches F and G were extended to form one larger investigative area: Trench 1, which measured 1 m x 0.8 m. The trench seemed to confirm that the brick surface did not extend further than 0.5 m to the south, but the excavation of additional trenches uncovered the continuation of the brick surface further to the east. The surface was situated between the Palace and the former Privy Orchard, an area that has almost certainly been a thoroughfare for the delivery goods since Wolsey's time. Surface lies a mere 0.24 m below the current ground level. A limestone slab was also observed in one of the eastern-most trenches, and may correspond to the remains of a threshold. The very restricted view posed by the size of these trenches did not enable any further interpretation.
