Summary. A watching brief was carried out during groundworks for a residential development at nos 83-88 East Hill (Belgrave Place), Colchester, Essex. Land Lane and the western part of the site appear to have been raised within the last two centuries. Within the eastern part of the site, there was evidence of medieval and post-medieval occupation to the rear of nos 83-85 East Hill, including a length of a medieval wall-plinth and a timber-lined tank or cellar. Evidence of later post-medieval or modern occupation was also recorded.
