Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (two trial-trenches) was carried out at Fantasia House, Bambers Green Road, Essex, in advance of the conversion and extension of the existing cartlodge into an annexe and the construction of a new cartlodge-style double bay garage. Fantasia House is a 17th-century timber-framed house, and the accompanying timber-framed cartlodge dates to the following century. The site also lies to the south of The Grange, another 17th-century timber-framed house set in a medieval moated site, which is a scheduled ancient monument. Despite being situated in an archaeologically-sensitive area, however, no archaeological remains were encountered.
