Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at Writtle Mill, Chelmsford Road, Writtle, Essex during the construction of a single dwelling. The site was formerly occupied by a 19th-century mill, demolished around 2000, the foundations of which were recorded during an archaeological evaluation carried out in 2016. Groundworks for the new dwelling further exposed the foundations of the mill. As during the evaluation, there was no evidence of an earlier mill.
