Full Description

A single visit to observe footings associated with a barn conversion project at The Elms, All Saints South Elmham, revealed no archaeology within the trenches. To the north of the house, a slight dip in the lawn adjacent to the driveway appears to be a section of backfilled moat, some of which survives as a series of ponds surrounding the house. The slightly elevated location of The Elms, an early timber framed building, suggests it occupies a raised platform, a feature commonly associated with medieval moated enclosures (S1).
