Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (one trial-trench) was carried out at Brook Farm, Halstead Road, Fordham, Essex in advance of the conversion and extension of the existing dwelling. The site is located near a brickworks which operated from the mid 19th century until the First World War, and lies to the northeast of numerous cropmarks. Excavations revealed a large modern pit which was probably associated with activity at the brickworks.
