In October and November 2000 the English Heritage Cambridge Archaeological Investigation team carried out a survey of structures in the inter-tidal zone at Coalhouse Point, East Tilbury, Essex. The survey was requested by the EH Scheduled Ancient Monument Inspector for Essex and involved a full topographical survey to RCHME Archaeology Level 3 standards, at a scale of 1:500. The survey was conducted using a Trimble Global Satellite Positioning System (GPS), followed by conventional graphical survey. The survey was supported by selective ground photography and documentary reserach at the Public Record Office, Kew, and the Essex record Office, Chelmsford. A full analytical report is available from the NMR archive.

The project is part of the English contribution to an EU Culture 2000 multiannular project "Landscapes of War" . The aim of the wider Landscapes of War project is to record and disseminate information on heritage of 20th century conflicts, both on land and at sea in the project partner's areas; under the banner of "Remembering Conflict in 20th century Europe". The English Heritage representatives on the project are Dr. John Schofield, Head of Military programmes, and Robin Page, Acting Projects Team leader, Datasets Development. The main component of the English contribution will be to build on the existing NMR datbase records by targeting a body of reports (which are national in scope) in the NMR library and incorporating their findings into AMIE.
