Summary. Observations were made during an archaeological watching brief on the digging of cable trenches around the tennis courts at St Helena's School, Sheepen Road, Colchester, Essex. The trenches were being dug for new floodlights and their power cables. Two features were observed in the trenches, only one of which was certainly archaeological. There was a large number of loose finds, principally Roman tile and late Iron Age/Roman pottery of a type which has been found in adjacent Sheepen excavations.
