Between the 15th and 16th of June 2015, an archaeological evaluation was carried out at the Magistrates Court, Newland Road, Witham, Essex. The site which has been proposed as a housing development is situated adjacent to the line of a Roman road with an Iron Age fortified enclosure to the north-east.
Three trial trenches were excavated and whilst there was evidence of post medieval activity possibly related to the construction of the court building, there was no evidence of any archaeological activity predating the courts or the adjacent police station.
