An archaeological evaluation was carried out on 3.35 hectares of land between Barrow Lane (to the south) and Halstead Hill (to the west) in Goffs Oak, Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire. The work took place in response to a planning condition. The site was centred on grid reference TL 3364 0210. The fieldwork took place in two phases, between 1/12/14 and 2/12/14, and between 26/1/15 and 27/1/15. In total, 12 trenches were excavated, each of 50 metres by 2 metres.
The trenches revealed no archaeological features, only modern disturbance. The northern half of the site had seen fly-tipping across large areas, but did reveal a 20th century machine pit with wooden planks across the base and a concrete plinth. The south-western corner was affected by garages that had been on the site previously, whilst the south-eastern corner contained shallow deposits disturbed by concrete posts.
