Type and Period (2)
February 2013: Evaluation trenching revealed a large south-east/north-west aligned ditch running parallel to the high street. The ditch contained medieval and post medieval pottery. Hodkinson’s map of Suffolk suggests the presence of a linear green where this house now stands and the large ditch was interpreted as the boundary edge of this green. South of this ditch there was evidence of extensive ground disturbance of post medieval date. This disturbance is likely to represent a phase of quarrying at the site (S1).
