Abstract

Between the 31st October and 22nd December 2011 OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief at Falconers Lodge, Woodham Walter, near Maldon. This is on the northern side of the medieval moated site formerly housing Woodham Walter Hall (TL 8135 0653). The site was designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument in 2010 (National Monument No 35552). Between 2007 and 2010 the previous owner of the site carried out unauthorised dumping of material to the north of the earthworks in order to level up the sloping valley side. The monitoring was carried out during work to remove modern dumped materials. The material had been dumped to the north of a broad east-west earthwork dam. The dumped material was removed using a mechanical excavator. Former, pre-dumping, ground levels were restored including exposing the bank of the medieval dam.
