Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at 169 Greenstead Road, Colchester, Essex, during groundworks for a rear extension. Several walls, a brick floor and a possible soakaway were uncovered. These structures represent the remains of a late 19th- or early 20th-century building which stood at this site prior to its demolition and the construction of the houses which currently line Greenstead Road at some point during the early 20th century.
