Summary. Archaeological Trust at 61 and 63 New London Road, Chelmsford CM1 0ND in March 2022.

The buildings detailed in this report are located in what remains of terrace constructed in 1848. Now only four buildings long, nos 61 and 63 are located in the centre of the row. They are three-storey with a basement, and both have a single-storey wing projecting to the south-east. Nos 61 and 63 are a good example of a mid-19th century terrace, which incorporated new and old building techniques and layouts to attract the emerging Victorian middle-class. Not much of the original interior survives, particularly in no 61, but there are small glimpses into the buildings original fabric and form.
