Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (six trial-trenches) was carried out at Three Acres, Anchor Lane, Canewdon, Essex in advance of the construction of 35 new dwellings. The development site is located immediately to the south of the late Saxon/early medieval centre of Canewdon which was focussed around the church and hall complex. Fortytwo ditches, gullies and pits were excavated dating to the Iron Age, medieval and postmedieval periods. A concentration of medieval and post-medieval features and finds to the north of the development site may be indicative of farm yard or back yard activity to the south of the village.
