    • The stratigraphical relationship of the drain is not clear. It appears to be under the top soil possibly cut through the hardcore cap (F706), (7005). This drain did cut through a layer of reddish-brown silty sand with occasional medium and mod sub-angular stones poorly sorted exactly matching the sub-soil (7002). It is also possible that the layers of a clay cap (F707), (7004) and the hardcore cap (F706), (7005) originally abutted the drain and that it is contemporary. Considering that it was filled with sculptured stone fragments probably relating to stones taken from Winchcombe Abbey in January 1547 by Thomas Seymour indicated by the 1420 makers mark on one of the stones it may well be contemporaneous with the construction of the Tudor Garden platform in the 1570’s but this relationship is not clear at this time.
