Summary. A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust on two WWII-era military huts at Great Easton Manor, Dunmow Road, Great Easton, Essex. The huts recorded were a concrete-asbestos Handcraft Hut and a sectional timber hut, which were likely relocated from the nearby RAF Great Dunmow in the early 1950ís. Both huts were probably first used for barrack accommodation on the temporary airfield, sold off after RAF Great Dunmow was closed and subsequently used for farm storage.
