Project type: Archaeological building assessment and monitoring
Significance of the results: neg
A watching brief and associated historic building assessment was
carried out during construction of a dwelling on land to the rear of 11 Market Place, Great Dunmow, Essex. During the groundworks, no archaeological features were uncovered, and the foundation trenches only impacted modern layers, mostly redeposited natural.
The building assessment proved that the building demolished prior to the watching brief was not the historic barn shown on the first edition OS map, but a much more recent structure that was erected around 1955.
Nothing of archaeological interest was discovered.
