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
