An archaeological evaluation, comprising four trenches, was carried .out at Belstead Hall Farm (Field 36) within the Zone C residential housing area, Beaulieu, Chelmsford, Essex. The fieldwork took place between the 1/11/16 and the 3/11/16. The work took place in the vicinity of the medieval manor of Belstead farm. Three ditches were found that may represent either drainage or boundary ditches. One was likely of medieval date and the others of probable post-medieval date. Due to the presence of underground cables, a trench that targeted the location of the moat which surrounded the medieval manor could not be fully excavated. Consequently the moat's position and character remained unverified.
