Summary. Historic building recording was carried out on a complex of buildings at the former Par Air Services Pet Travel Company ('The Warrens'), Warren Lane, Stanway, Essex in November 2015. This work revealed that the complex comprised a mid-to-late 19th-century brick-built dwelling and a series of concrete and timber outbuildings dating to the 20th century. The dwelling had replaced a cottage and yard which were located on the site in the late 18th century. The dwelling was called the ‘The Warrens’, recalling the medieval warrens owned by Stanway manor on the adjacent land and it was the home of the local wheelwright and blacksmith in the mid- late 19th century.
