The English Heritage survey of Stowe undertaken in 2001 notes that the 19th century deer fence is still in use and has recently been repaired. It runs from the Corinthian arch to the Oxford Gate quarries (SP68013622 to SP66643664). A short stretch of fence also runs from the West Boycott Pavillion towards the Dadford-Buckingham road centred at SP66723694. The survey notes that this type of fence was once fairly common and is known to exist at, for example, Fort Cumberland, Portsmouth, dated to 1880s. (1)
