The results are in from the archaeological trenching at Gadebridge Park!

 As COVID-19 restrictions have been relaxed, we have been able to work on the areas of archaeological trenching at Gadebridge Park in Hemel Hempstead. We've added topsoil, reseeded grass and removed any hard material. The metal fencing has also been removed.

 We found some interesting pieces including: a brick culvert, most likely related to the water gardens or mill known to surround the site, a handle shard from a late 18th to early 19th century creamware jug, a large nail, and a horseshoe!

The size and dating of these finds means they are of little archaeological value and there are no recommendations for any further archaeological work. We can now proceed onto the detailed designs stage of the river restoration project.
