Summary. Archaeological monitoring and recording was carried out at 9 London Road, Maldon, Essex in advance of the construction of a rear extension. The development site is located within the area of the -10th-century Saxon burh and the burh ditch is thought to run along the length of the property. Monitoring revealed patches of compacted dirty gravel, possibly forming a metalled yard or street surface, cut by three post-medieval pits. No trace of the burh ditch was identified.
