Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust on a complex of farm buildings at Mudwall Farm, High Easter Road, Barnston, Essex in April 2013. The work was commissioned by Alun Design Consultancy Ltd on behalf of Mr E Butler. The farm buildings are arranged in a regular courtyard U-plan with the farmhouse detached to the south. The complex includes a large threshing barn, stable block, chaise house and cattle sheds. The structures date from throughout the 19th century. Mudwall Farm is good example of the evolution of a planned farmstead in the 19th century and retains many of the original features.
