Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (two trial-trenches) was carried out at 30 Bridge Street, Writtle, Essex in advance of the construction of a new dwelling. The site lies to the east of the historic core of Writtle, which traces its origins back to the medieval period, and northwest of a bridge spanning the River Wid at a point which has likely formed a crossing over the river since the medieval period. Despite lying in an archaeologically-sensitive area only two pits one medieval or post-medieval and one modern were uncovered.
