Summary. An archaeological evaluation by trial-trenching (five trial-trenches) was carried out at Lordships Stud, Writtle, Essex in advance of the construction of 17 dwellings with associated landscaping, car parking and access. The development site is located in an area of prehistoric cropmarks, Roman settlement remains and close to the King John's Hunting Lodge.
