Project type: Archaeological evaluation
Significance of the results: *
Keywords: post-medieval wall, brick floor, ditch
A single evaluation trench 8m in length was positioned within the footprint of a proposed new extension. This revealed three archaeological features: a fragment of a post-medieval/modern wall foundation, an associated brick yard surface, and a post-medieval ditch.
These features relate to domestic activity in the properties fronting onto New London Road, and shed no light on the development of Roman or medieval Chelmsford.
