Summary. A trench, 3.75m long, 2.5m wide and 1.4-1.5m deep, was dug in advance of the construction of a new toilet block outside Angel Court, High Street, Colchester, Essex. The area had been disturbed by many modern service trenches but two medieval/postmedieval features were identified in the trench. These were part of a floor/path and a cut feature of uncertain type. It is possible that both of these features are associated with the remains of St Runwald's church.
