Abstract:
A series of groundworks were monitored within and outside the Scheduled Monument, including the development of a new Visitor Centre and access paths, trenching for I.T and gas connections, and excavation of trial pits to locate a water leak. There were a number of positive results, mainly in the I.T and gas trenches. Several brick wall bases were recorded, including one of potential Tudor date just to the northeast of the main gate and two further structures - one brick, one stone, and of possible 16th/17th century date - that may have terraced the outer bank of the moat. A number of finds and artefacts were recovered, including 16th to 19th century pottery, a probable mid-18th century shoe buckle and a pit containing butchered cattle remains. Elsewhere excavation revealed no significant features: groundworks alongside the moat indicated fairly recent made ground, potentially dating to the landscaping works of the 1930s and probably consolidating/ partly infilling an originally wider feature. Observation of the new Visitor Centre site showed that the area had been comprehensively truncated, probably in the mid 1990s rather than the original 1930s development. Recent made ground often directly overlay natural clay, with vestiges of weathered natural or truncated subsoil. Nevertheless, observations did provide some original information on the 1930s construction - an access slide to a cellar a sloping buried floor slab in one of the glasshouses, and a possible brick planter adjoining another
