2005: The site is situated within the Saxon and medieval defences of the town of Ipswich and partially lies within the precinct of the Blackfriars Friary. Archaeological monitoring revealed a c.7m length of the former precinct wall running parallel with, but set back by c.8m from, Fore Street. It was coincidental with the rear wall of No. 2, Fore Street, and had been acting as its foundation. Excavation of a footing to the rear of No. 6 Fore Street revealed a further length of the precinct wall running, on the same alignment. In the yard to the rear of Nos. 2-8, Fore Street, monitoring of the excavations for ground beams for a residential block was also undertaken but only post medieval made ground deposits were disturbed (S1).
