Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust on a complex of three buildings at Wall Farm, Ford End, Great Waltham, Essex in December 2011. The work was commissioned by Alun Design Consultancy Ltd on behalf of R E Butler and Son. The complex includes a Grade II listed 17th-century dovecote (converted to a granary in the 18th century), an unlisted 18th-century barn with attached later structures and an unlisted 19th-century barn also with attached structures, grouped around an open farmyard. The structures surveyed at Wall Farm illustrate the development of a small Essex farm from the 17th up to the 20th century.
