Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out on land adjacent to 27 High Street, Stock, Essex, during the groundworks for the construction of a house, garage, summer house and garden wall. The site is located in the centre of the historic village of Stock, where pottery manufacturing was an important industry from the 16th until the 19th century. The only feature uncovered during the monitoring works was a single natural feature, although a good assemblage of postmedieval finds were recovered from the topsoil and a layer of made-ground.
