A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust at Maldon Wycke Barn, Spital Road, Maldon, Essex in April 2021.
The building was constructed in the 18th century as a single-storey two-bay cart-lodge associated with the nearby properties of Maldon Wycke and Maldon Hall. At a later date, sometime before 1838, the cart-lodge was extended with three more bays to the west and with a second-storey granary.
Subsequently, in the 20th century, a single-storey lean-to was added to the northern elevation. At a similar time a series of garage doors and windows were installed on the building’s southern elevation and a substantial amount of the timber-frame was rebuilt using machine-cut timber, probably due to damage or a collapse.
