(with contributions from -)
Date report completed: December 2013
Location: land adjacent to Broad Street Green Road, Heybridge, Essex
Map reference(s): TL 8611 0905

Project type: Archaeological trial-trenching evaluation
Significance of the results: Negative
This site lies on the northern edge of Heybridge and 800m west of the extensive area of cropmarks which includes the Lofts Farm Bronze Age enclosure excavated in 1984-5.
Three evaluation trenches (total length 30m) were positioned within the footprint of two new dwellings, and along an associated access road. Archaeological features revealed included the foundations of a farm cottage demolished in the mid 1960s, as well as two small modern rubbish pits which were probably associated with the demolished cottage.
