The installation of an environmental control system at Canons Ashby necessitated the digging of trenches outside the house, and some internal opening up. Observation of the trenches revealed no evidence for the former
entrance drive, but a number of minor features including drains outside the kitchen. Internally the lifting offloorboards revealed a possible earlier fireplace
in the Tapestry Room, and a lower floor ín the Drawing Room, while redundant features behind panelling were noted in the Dining Room and Tapestry Room. The stonework collection was examined and found to contain some sígníficant
items of medieval decorative masonry.
