Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust (CAT) on a building at Howe Farm, Grange Road, Tillingham, Essex in February 2013. The work was commissioned by the owner, Mr Nicolas Mee. The building is a two-storey brick farmhouse built between 1799 and 1838 with surviving period features. The farmhouse is an example of the response to the change from pastoral farming to arable farming brought about by the reclamation of Tillingham Marshes.
