Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (fourteen trial-trenches) was carried out on land west of Peldon Road, Abberton, Essex in advance of the submission of a planning application for a residential development. The site is located immediately to the south of the historic Abberton Green. Fourteen features five pits, four ditches, two pit/treethrows, a gully and two treethrows were uncovered. It is likely that these remains are the product of activity within the historic Peete-tye Common.
