New Playing Fields and Athletics Track Stowe School Buckinghamshire

Sims, Mike New Playing Fields and Athletics Track Stowe School Buckinghamshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




In April and May 2009 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Stowe School, Stowe, Buckinghamshire (centred at NGR SP 681 383). The work was commissioned by Stowe School in advance of the construction of new playing fields and the resurfacing of an existing athletics track. The watching brief revealed no archaeological evidence within the area of the new playing fields, possibly due to previous intensive agricultural use of the site. Evidence of the 18thcentury landscaped gardens, including two possible pathways and a stone wall, was observed within the area of the athletics track, together with evidence of the original ground levels prior to the construction of the athletics track
