An archaeological evaluation was carried out on the site of the proposed Boreham Autotransformer Ready Feeder Station as part of the Great Eastern Main Line Power Supply Upgrade. The field work took place between the 14th and 17th June 2016. A total of five trenches were excavated within the proposed development area. The evaluation sought to confirm the presence or absence of archaeological remains within the site including former Victorian railway workers cottages in order to assess the preservation of this structure. During the evaluation demolition layers associated with these buildings were encountered, though little evidence was present for a surviving structure. Possible garden features were present to the north of the building. A small palaeochannel of the Boreham Brook was recorded in Trench 1 at the west of the site.
