Significance of the results:
This is the report on a Level 1 historic building recording carried out on part of St John's Abbey Wall, Napier Road, Colchester, Essex, prior to conservation work being undertaken. The work was commissioned by RPS, on behalf of Taylor Wimpey East London, at the request of Historic England, as necessary repairs would have slightly altered the appearance of the historic wall. The building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust (CAT) in July 2016.
All work was carried out according to standards and practices contained in the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists’ Standard and guidance for archaeological investigation and recording of standing buildings or structures (2008), Management of research projects in the historic environment (MoRPHE), and Standards for field archaeology in the East of England (EAA 14). In addition, the guidelines contained in English Heritage: Understanding Historic Buildings, A guide to good recording practice (2006) and RCHME: Descriptive Specification 3rd Edition were followed.
