Significance of the results:

Summary. A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust on a gateway at Gatehouse Farm, Thorrington, Essex in October 2020. The gateway is constructed of red bricks, laid in an irregular English-bond, and dates from the early 16th century. Despite several phases of repair, including the addition of two buttresses on its south-eastern elevation, the fabric of the gateway has significantly deteriorated and now requires considerable restoration.
