Project type: Archaeological monitoring and trial-trenching
Significance of the results: negative
The proposed development lies on land west of High Warren Farm, along Lee Chapel Lane, Langdon Hills, Essex. Four trial-trenches (each 9m long) were excavated within the proposed footprints of four detached houses. These were located to avoid a former road and with the intention to identify a boundary associated with a post-medieval settlement at Nightingales Farm.
The strip of the access road into the site was also subject to archaeological monitoring.
No significant archaeological remains were encountered. The only features present were six modern pits and a modern linear feature.
