Significance of the results:

Summary. A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust of an agricultural outbuilding at Princes Halfyards, Stebbing Road, Felsted, Essex in August 2020. This agricultural outbuilding comprises the remains of two structures, with the northern end being all that remains of a separate structure that has since been demolished. Given a section of surviving cobbled floor and drainage, the outbuilding was probably used for the keeping of animals. Although appearing on the tithe map of 1845, the hand-sawn timbers within the outbuilding are extremely rudimentary and suggest it was rebuilt in a vernacular style, without the contribution of a trained carpenter, in the later 19th century.
