Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at Shore House, The Quay, Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex during groundworks for a single-storey rear extension. Shore House is an 18th-century Grade II listed building which lies in the historic core of Burnham-on-Crouch, which has its origins in the medieval period. Excavation of the site revealed an 18th-century layer of made around which was presumably laid as part of the construction of Shore House. No further remains were encountered as the groundworks did not penetrate beyond post-medieval layers.
