Project type: Watching brief (negative)
Significance of the results: Neg

Summary. Several monitoring visits were made to 37 Avenue Road, Witham, Essex during the groundworks for a small residential development. The watching brief produced largely negative results. Some probable modern disturbance was recorded within the topsoil at the rear of the site and also in the driveway strip, the sewer-trench and in plot 3. No finds or features were observed to suggest prehistoric, Roman, Anglo-Saxon or medieval occupation. None of the features were large or early enough to represent the remains of defensive ditches to Chipping Hill hillfort.
