At Cedars Park, Cheshunt, contractor’s excavations to find routes for new services have exposed an extensive complex of built features. Centred on the west end of the former car park, to the north of the old cafe building, the area is crowded with a variety of built features.
Initial interpretation is complicated, but it seems that the area contains at least one palace wall. Others are built from recycled palace materials and include large sections of stone window mullion as well as other substantial stone elements. Some of these form the core of walls faced with apparently 18th century brick cladding. Others are probably of 18th century origin whist still more, with shallow frogged bricks are plainly from the mid 19th century.
