Not sure about that. Generally the family of the executed were given their possessions back, if they could be bothered to ask for them. Seem to recall there was an issue with the execution of Charles 1 with people dipping their kerchiefs in the blood for veneration purposes.This is a great shame. However I doubt whether Elizabeth's officers would have allowed any scaffold relics to survive.
This one?I think Cecil at all would have been acutely aware that Maryan relics would have the potential to be the focus Catholic sedition. Indeed the drawing said to be based on the eyewitness accounts of the execution actually depicts officers burning the stuff she carried on the scaffold. It is swell known image but I am.Not in a position to post it at present
Hope the repairs to those casemates are well underway now .Old news but I just saw this Storm prompted wall collapse at Henry VIII's Hurst Castle about part of the east casemates at Hurst Castle collapsing. Reads like EH have been aware of a problem for some time.
I gather they had a Twin Six removed from Fort Albert IoW in the east casemates somewhere, hope that's not been damaged.Hope the repairs to those casemates are well underway now .
The shingle causeway had many tons of shingle added to it a few years back but it looks like they didn't do much to protect that side of the wing battery .
Going by memory the twin 6pr emplacements were on the west wing and just in front of the Tudor castle .I gather they had a Twin Six removed from Fort Albert IoW in the east casemates somewhere, hope that's not been damaged.

'The remains of a Great Wall castle dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) were discovered in northwest China's Shaanxi Province, said the Shaanxi Academy of Archaeology Tuesday.
'Architectural relics, including two courtyards, were found at the remains of the Qingpingbao castle, located in Jingbian County, Yulin City.
'The courtyard on the south side is relatively large at 60 meters long and 25 meters wide. Its walls, houses, and brick floors are well preserved.
'Archeologists also unearthed a stone tablet in the courtyard. According to the inscription on the tablet, the courtyard is the site of a temple called Xianying Palace. More than 30 painted clay statues were also found.
'The other courtyard is the site of the remains of a larger building to the east of the Xianying Palace. A 12-meter-long and 3-meter-tall remaining base was discovered here.
'The remains of the castle were found in an earth ditch from which local villagers took soil to build a road in April last year, and rescue excavation work started in the following month.
'The castle is about 10 km away from the Great Wall, built in the Ming Dynasty. It retains the pattern, style, and characteristics of the Ming Wall castle. It is well preserved in terms of its original appearance in northern Shaanxi.'
