Project type: Historic building recording
Significance of the results:
A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust on a building to the rear of the Red Lion Public House, 42 South Street, Manningtree, Essex in September 2019.
Since the building had been partially demolished prior to the recording being carried out, little could be conclusively said about its function or age. Historic mapping shows it was originally an outbuilding that was later incorporated into the Red Lion as the pub was extended westwards. Based on recovered building materials from the structure, it was constructed in or after the late 18th century, suggesting it may have been constructed at the same time as the Red Lion itself.
