Summary. An archaeological watching brief was carried out during the excavation of two footings trenches at 57 Church Street, Harwich, Essex, which is a 16th-century building. At the rear of the property, part of the southern wall was seen to be of stone construction. The excavation of the footings trench at the rear of the building revealed the foundation to this wall which was 750mm deep and consisted of septaria chips set into lime mortar and clay. Beneath the foundation was a possible occupation layer pre-dating the current building.
