An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Zone G, Beaulieu, Chelmsford. The fieldwork took place between the 30/3/15 and the 08/4/15. A total of nine trenches were excavated across two separate fields, within the proposed development area.
Within the eastern part of the proposed development area three ditches were encountered, two of which are remnant field boundaries and the third is likely to have been a furrow. All date to the late medieval / early post medieval period.
A north to south aligned ditch was identified in the north-west area of the evaluation and is believed to be the original field boundary, which was replaced by the pale park ditch, associated with the later contraction of the deer park.
There was no evidence to suggest that the late medieval settlement remains seen in the western side of the field (Site 10) extended into this evaluation area.
