Summary. Archaeological monitoring was conducted on land at Heath Place, located between Chadwell St Mary and Orsett, near Grays in south Essex, by the Colchester Archaeological Trust (CAT) on the 17th August 2009. Invasive groundworks on the site consisted of the removal of an unlisted building directly adjacent to a listed brickbuilt building (store) which is to be retained and modified. The demolished building is to be replaced with a single-storey residential annexe built on top of the existing footprint on newly-constructed foundations. The development site is within the curtilage of Heath Place, a late 18th-century listed house constructed of brick and timber framing. The fieldwork was carried out as required in a brief issued by the Essex County Council HEM team and in accordance with the Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) produced by CAT.
