Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust (CAT) on a complex of buildings off West Stockwell Street, Colchester, Essex in March 2013. Mills Whipp Projects Ltd on behalf of Fenwick Ltd commissioned the work. The complex comprises the rare remains of an example of early urban housing expansion in Colchester, dating to 1830 (later converted to a workshop), a large workshop dating to the last quarter of the 19th century and a small, single-storey structure dating to the start of the 20th century, all associated with a small-scale industrial undertaking. This industry was set up by Williams and Co, the forerunner of the landmark Colchester business, Williams and Griffin.
