Project type: Historic Building Recording
Significance of the results:
A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust at ‘Glencoe’ and ’Sunnyside’, Severalls Hospital, Tower Lane,Colchester, Essex in June 2020.
The building consists of two brick-built, two-storey semi-detached structures located immediately to the north of the recently redeveloped site of Severalls Hospital in Colchester. Constructed at the same time as, or shortly after, the hospital in the earlyn 20th century, Glencoe and Sunnyside was unquestionably associated with it. With each semi-detached building containing a kitchen, storage, W.Cs and several bedrooms, they would have been fully independent properties. The building was presumably used by ancillary support staff to the hospital.
