Introduction

Former Dunmow Skips site, Station Road, Felsted, Essex. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: heritage1-183347)

In order to characterise the archaeological potential of land located at the former Dunmow Skips site, Essex, the Heritage Network was commissioned by Dunmow Skips Ltd, to undertake an archaeological field evaluation. This work was a requirement of the planning consent granted by the local planning authority. The northern half of the site was occupied by an old quarry and the southern half was covered by concrete hardstanding, a former waste transfer station and skip hire business. Prior to the excavation of the eight proposed evaluation trenches, the removal of the hardstanding was monitored. During this process it became clear no potential archaeological finds or horizons survive on the site.
