Exciting Discoveries in the Walled Garden!

Some weeks ago, while fencing off the foundations of the old greenhouses in the walled garden, our landscape contractors ‘lost’ a fence post in the surrounding ground. As they knocked it in, it disappeared in a void underneath.

On 3rd November 2021, surveyors from SUMO Survey Services brought their Ground Penetrating Radar equipment to the Walled Garden in order to survey what may be under the area. SUMO Survey Services were part of the team who found King Richard III’s remains under a car park in Leicester some years ago.

Early indications show that there are 2 ‘voids’ located over a meter underground & we await their full results with anticipation!
