Landscape Features At Cedars Park, Cheshunt, May 5th-7th 2012
Excavations investigated four areas along a partly surviving and partly buried landscape feature, also known from map evidence. The feature was speculated to be a water supply course linked to ornamental canals in the 17thC gardens of Theobalds Palace. However, it was established that it was in fact a late 18th/early 19thC ornamental water filled channel, probably partly re-cut as a gravel quarry boundary in the 20thC.
