Oxford Archaeology East undertook archaeological monitoring along the route of the Braintree PZ Supply\Demand Balance pipeline for Anglian Water. This report deals with those sites and findings uncovered on the route from the east of Braintree (TL7803 2245), in the north-west, to Cressing (TL7953 2168), in the south-east, between the October 2014 and March 2015. Archaeological monitoring was required along the entire length of the pipeline which ran for 1.8km. Cropmarks were also visible adjacent to several fields along the route near Cressing. The site of a demolished post-medieval farm house had also been identified. Monitoring of topsoil and subsoil removal on the route uncovered no significant archaeological features. A metal detector survey, conducted along the entire route, recovered no artefacts. No archaeological sites were uncovered along the course of the route.
