Significance of the results:
A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust at Greenacre Farm, Smallgains Lane, Stock in February 2018.
Four buildings were recorded on the site. Three are brick-built structures that were erected during, or shortly after, the redevelopment of the farm complex into a ‘model farm’ in the early/mid 19th century. The fourth building is a timber-framed, three-bay, threshing barn, which would originally have been five-bays. Its frame contains a large amount of re-used timber and was possibly built at the same time as the other structures, but may pre-date them and be 17th/18th century in origin. Its midstrey and southernmost bay were rebuilt in the latter half of the 19th century.
