Summary. Archaeological monitoring took place at 158 Straight Road, Colchester during groundworks for a rear and side extension. The development site is located at the 'Peartree Junction' where Prettygate Dyke meets the Shrub End Dyke. Minor features were found likely all modern but there was no evidence of the dykes, which appear to have been truncated by the construction of the house and garage and accompanying landscaping.
