Ruins of Medieval palace have been recently discovered beneath the garden of an English Retiree.  Charles Pole, a retired bank official, who resides in Wiveliscombe town didn’t know what was in his garden when he employed a group of builders for a construction job.

An unexpected thing happened when the builders came across wall foundations and the ruins of a medieval palace, believed to be the 13th-century building.

According to history, there was a palace in the area. Until now, researchers aren’t certain where the remaining parts of the palace ruins were hidden.

What we didn’t know is where the buildings would have been in relation to that gateway. They’ve often been thought of as being much further to the east where we knew there were a big barn and a big open space, but this is the first time we’ve actually got stone foundations discovered.

The original palace buildings were believed to be built after 1256 when the bishop of Bath and Wells was granted the right to hunt in the area. This palace was one of the residences local bishops used. Gazette revealed that Ralph of Shrewsbury and Bishops John de Drokensford supervised the building projects at the site.

Archaeologists have recorded their findings and are now looking for ways to preserve the foundations of this structure. This discovery hasn’t been good news for Charles Pole because the builders had to stop working immediately they discovered the ruins of the medieval palace.
