Summary. An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by CAT at Bulmer Brick Works, Hedingham Road, Bulmer, Essex on 14th September 2011. The work consisted of stripping around the top of existing quarry face (referred to here as Trench 1 (T1)) where the quarry-pit was to be extended and the excavation of an evaluation trench (T2) in the field a short distance northeast of the quarry pit. All that was found along the top of the existing face was a ditch containing finds of post-medieval or modern date. No significant archaeological features or layers were encountered in Trench 2 although a single later prehistoric flint flake was recovered from the spoil.
