Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring and recording was carried out at Front Lodge, Moor Place, Much Hadham, Hertfordshire during groundworks for the demolition of an external shed/bothy and the construction of a new extension and cartlodge. Front Lodge is located within the historically important area of Moor Place, an estate originating in the 15th century. Front Lodge itself was built between 1838 and 1879 replacing an earlier building. Three grubbed-out hedges, a linear feature and postholes from an old fence are all old boundary features associated with the property. The garden contained at least one, possibly two, ponds with drainage ditches, and two small pits were probably the remains of grubbed-out shrubs. All of the features appear to be of a modern 19th20th century date, but some residual post-medieval finds might suggest activity originating in this earlier period.
