Summary. A programme of building recording and archaeological monitoring was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust on a complex of seven buildings at the historic moated Leaden Hall Farm, Leaden Roding, Essex between April and November 2011. The complex includes a Grade II listed c 1600 barn, a Grade II listed late 17th-century barn and later curtilage listed structures (including a granary and cart shed) from the 19th and 20th centuries, grouped around an open farmyard. The seven structures surveyed at Leaden Hall Farm illustrate the development of an Essex farm from the 17th through to the 20th century, and the complex forms a varied group whose buildings and environment have survived essentially unaltered.
