Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust on four buildings at the medieval farm complex of Lindsell Hall, Lindsell, Essex in July 2011. Three of the buildings date from between 1838-1876, whilst the oldest dates from between 1777-1838. All of the buildings are curtilage-listed to Lindsell Hall. The buildings are associated with pig farming and provide examples of the re-use of older structures and materials in farms. Three of the buildings have been partially demolished and are in a dilapidated state. The remaining building has been altered significantly. The significance of these buildings is in their connection to farming life in Essex and the historic farm complex at Lindsell Hall.
