Significance of the results:
A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust at Hyde Farm Barn, Gosfield Road, Blackmore End, Essex in May 2019.
The earlier of the two buildings detailed in this report is a six-bay timber-framed structure which may predate 1777 and contains a high proportion of reused hand-sawn timber (originating from an earlier medieval house). This building had two midstreys added, then subsequently removed, from its southern elevation in the late 19th century. The later of the two recorded buildings is a five-bay threshing barn raised between 1866 and 1876 and constructed with hand-sawn timber in a vernacular style.
