Medieval Palace Gatehouse discovered in Sherwood Forest

In March 2013 a building survey of two cottages was undertaken: Arundel Cottage and Brammer Farm House in the village of King's Clipstone in Nottinghamshire as part of the Kings Clipstone Village Community Archaeology Project.

His investigations have discovered the standing remains of a Medieval Gatehouse to the Royal Palace Palace now known as King John's Palace, which formed the heart of Sherwood Forest in Medieval times. The results of his work can be seen at the Mercian Archaeological Servcies CIC Document store:
