The major part of the archaeological monitoring of the track under construction in Forty Hall is now complete. As mentioned previously, despite the shallow cut and routing of the path around the very edge of the park, the work has provided us with several windows into archaeology we have not had a chance to see before.
One of the more significant areas we studied was just inside the woods opposite Jesus Church, where geophysical and remote sensing surveys suggested the main approach road to Elsyng Palace once ran between the road of Forty Hill and the site of the outer Tudor court (now under the lime tree avenue).

Since early October, the EAS has been monitoring work currently being carried out in Forty Hall by Enfield Council to create new gravel paths as part of the borough-wide “Greenways” programme.
The scheme is part of a London-wide initiative to create an extensive network of accessible paths for shared use by pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users away from heavy traffic.
There are several “Greenways” planned for Enfield, and more details about the project can be found here.
