An archaeological evaluation (two trial-trenches) was carried out at Purley Farm House, Colne Road, Coggeshall, Essex in advance of the construction of a new dwelling. Purley Farm has origins in the late 18th/early 19th century and is located within an area of known cropmarks.
Several possible unurned cremations and medieval pottery sherds have also been found in the vicinity. Trenching at Purley Farm House revealed two large 19th-century pits.
