Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological strip, map and excavate was carried out at 84 Maldon Road, Tiptree, Essex during groundworks for a service trench through the footprint of a new access road. A trial-trenching evaluation conducted in January 2018 revealed post-medieval and modern remains, many associated with the demolished 17th-century Brook House. Current groundworks revealed three post-medieval/modern features (a post-medieval pit, a brick foundation which formed part of Brook House, and a 19th- or early 20thcentury ditch) and an undated pit with a posthole cut into its base.
