Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out on the site of the former post-medieval Michaelstowe Farm, Ramsey Road, Ramsey, Essex during groundworks for a new housing development. The monitoring took place after a historic building recording and evaluation. Primarily walls and a yard area related to the demolished post-medieval farm buildings were uncovered, as well as a post-medieval pit and a modern post-hole. However, two sections of wall foundations showed evidence of an earlier building and boundary wall visible on the 1840 tithe map.
