Summary. An archaeological investigation took place at Alresford Hall, Ford Lane, Alresford, Essex following a retrospective planning application for the construction of a swimming pool. Alresford Hall is an early 18th-century Grade II listed building and the swimming pool was located within one of the mid 19th-century walled gardens. Spoil from the swimming pool was investigated for finds retrieval and contained material of later post-medieval/modern date, likely from activities within the walled garden and wider estate. There was no evidence within the spoil that any earlier archaeological remains had been truncated when the pool was built.
