Introduction

Wentworth Woodhouse Gardens, Rotherham, South Yorkshire: Community Geophysical Survey

Resistance survey with pupils from local schools prior to garden restoration. An earth electrical resistance survey was conducted with pupils from nearby schools as part of a local community engagement project.

The survey has identified several probable former stone paths within the garden, most of which broadly correspond to those depicted on old maps. A probable former surfaced area was also identified in the central part of the garden. Two pipes have also been detected; both appear to be associated with the former sunken pond. The project has fulfilled all its objectives, in terms of geophysical survey, engagement of local young people and in informing future works in the garden.
