Summary. The excavation of footings for an extension on the western side of Grey Goose Farm Cottage in Orsett, Essex, was monitored by a CAT archaeologist on the 2nd September 2008. No archaeological deposits or remains were observed in the layers. The only feature cut into the natural was a small post-hole which contained frequent medium stones and one modern pot fragment. A glazed modern drainpipe was also observed in the north-west/south-east footing trench on a north-south alignment. No evidence of the extensive cropmark complex to the north of the site (at TQ 6254 8077) was uncovered.
