Oxford Archaeology East carried out an open area excavation within Site 3, Beaulieu, Chelmsford ahead of the construction of the RDR haulage road. The works were carried out between the 23/9/16 and 20/11/16.
The earliest phase of occupation recorded dates to the high medieval period and comprises several ditches, possibly forming part of a field system associated with the nearby manor of Bulls Lodge.
Undoubtedly the most significant remains encountered comprise four brick kilns (clamps), a probable specialist brick kiln and a number of associated features, including quarry pits, work surfaces and cart tracks. The brick kilns appear to be those built specifically for the construction of Henry VIII's Tudor palace located nearby at Beaulieu.
