PROJECT DETAILS Visits were made to the Scotland Street bridge, near Stoke-by-Nayland in Suffolk, to record the excavation of three small trenches on both sides of the bridge that crosses the north-west to south-east line of the River Box. The site was located within the conservation area of Stoke-by-Nayland close to several listed buildings, and it is known that there was a bridge in the area since the 14th century. No archaeological features or finds were recorded in the trenching. The soil profiles appeared to be fairly disturbed, due to the construction of the existing bridge in the 19th century, as well as subsequent repairs including subsequent resurfacing of the road.
