Abstract

Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an excavation of the East Parterre steps at Witley Court, Worcestershire (SO 769 648) on behalf of English Heritage. The excavation revealed the brick bases of the removed limestone steps S8,10, 13, 14 & 15. The limestone capping had been entirely removed on all steps except the ballroom steps (S13), where a remnant remained in situ. The brick bases incorporated a number of fragments of limestone, sandstone, tile and slate. Some worked stone was incorporated which appears to have been reclaimed from the structure of the earlier buildings on site. A range of finds were recovered including chandelier and window glass, architectural fragments, moulded plaster, pot and tile
