Date report completed: April 2015
Location: The Maltings, Waterside Place, Lower Sheering Road, Sheering, Essex
Map reference(s): TL 4911 1488
File size: 1,442 kb
Project type: Archaeological trial-trenching evaluation
Significance of the results: negative
The site is on the north edge of Sheering, close to the River Stort, and in a car-park adjacent to the old maltings. A cross-shaped evaluation trench (total length 42m) was excavated in the footprint of a proposed new building, but revealed no significant archaeological remains.
Modern fills were revealed, and modern disturbance probably due to the removal of a concrete silo prior to the conversion of the maltings complex for housing.
