An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Zone Q, Beaulieu, Chelmsford. The fieldwork took place between the 7/9/15 and the 25/11/15. A total of forty-one trenches were excavated across two separate fields, within the proposed development area.
The evaluation recorded the remains of early prehistoric dispersed settlement in the form of a fire pit and a rectangular pit which contained frequent charcoal. In the northern part of the development area a putative late medieval settlement was encountered, which comprised four potential wall foundations, potentially part of a building and two ditches thought to be part and an enclosure.
Early post-medieval remains comprising several brick-built linear features associated with the deer park were recorded in both fields. These are suggested to form part of a deer course.
