On the 6th February 2017 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a trenched evaluation of the route of the Grange Farm S98 sewage pipeline scheme at Tiptree, Essex (Between TL 8789 1771 and TL 8890 1659). The works revealed a shallow topsoil onto a clay natural. No archaeological features were found. Trenches 6 and 7 also contained a mixed ballast deposit, containing fragments of ballast, clinker and Iron railway fittings such as carriage bolts. This is the remnants of the now closed Tollesbury to Kelvedon light railway track bed. The railway construction of the railway started in 1901 and it was opened in 1904. The stretch from Tiptree to Kelvedon was kept open until 1962 when it was demolished.
