In February and March 2012 Oxford Archaeology undertook a watching brief during
the construction of an extension to the King Edward VII car park and associated
works, Windsor (NGR: centred at SU 972 779). The work was sited in the vicinity of
the “Maestricht Garden”, which was started in 1712 never completed. Superimposition
of the present day plan of the area over the proposed plan of the
Maestricht Garden showed that the site of the car park extension partially overlay
the eastern edge of the garden. Possible evidence for the north-south avenue
running along the eastern edge of the garden was observed in the form of isolated
gravel and chalk deposits running across the western edge of the car park. These
had been heavily disturbed, making determination of any possible alignment or
assessing whether the avenue had been completed very difficult.
The remainder of the works recorded evidence of 18th/19th century soils overlying
natural deposits, possibly indicating either cultivation or levelling and landscaping.
No evidence for archaeology pre-dating the the 18th century was observed during
the course of the watching brief
