Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring and recording was carried out at Cottawright, Common Road, Great Wakering in advance of the construction of an outbuilding in the garden of the property for use as a gym. The development site is lies near to the 12th century St Nicholas Church, which, it is believed, is located on the site of an Anglo-Saxon minster church built c 7th-9th century. Two medieval or post-medieval ditches were uncovered, although residual Roman and Anglo-Saxon finds in them suggest activity at this site at some time between the 5th and 8th centuries.
