Summary. An evaluation was carried out on land between Mile End Road and Bruff Close, consisting of six trial-trenches. The only features observed on the site were several gravelly patches that did not seem to be convincingly archaeological. The topsoil and subsoil contained a small quantity of Roman ceramic building material and pottery suggesting the site of a Roman building nearby. Peg-tile and floor tiles may have derived from the original church at Mile End which is partially extant to the north of the site.
