Significance of the results:
A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust on Front Lodge, Moor Place, Much Hadham, Hertfordshire in November 2015, prior to the demolition of an outbuilding and the construction of an extension. The work was commissioned by Foxley Builders. The lodge and outbuilding are both late 19th century in origin and the lodge in particular bears some hallmarks of the “Domestic Revival” style that became prevalent in Victorian architecture in the latter half of the 19th century.
An extension was added to the west side of the lodge in the mid-20th-century, and at about this time the original doorway was blocked and all the windows replaced. The outbuilding has no interesting stylistic traits and was likely a simple shed or storehouse.
