In October 2010, Archaeological Solutions Ltd (AS) conducted an historic building appraisal of a range of stables (termed a barn in the supporting documentation) at the Hall, Hall Road, Lavenham, Suffolk (NGR TL 912 491). The appraisal was carried out in order to comply with a condition attached to planning approval for proposed conversion. Technical analysis revealed a division of the entire range into three structural phases, though all are broadly contemporary, dating to the mid- to later 19th century. Differences may be related to varying use, with more expense and better construction invested into probable original stabling at the centre and to the east of the range. The western bays appear to have been open originally, as probable cart sheds. The whole building has suffered much modification with conversion into stabling, though the historic roofs and a few early fixtures and fittings survive.
