Full Description

Road. Gravel, 14 feet wide, 8 inches thick. Ditches 25 feet apart. Two pottery sherds (S1)(Romano-British), one IA sherd, found in 1967 on the road from Coddenham - Hacheston (a Rom road) cross section was taken to prove road is Rom.

Taken from NRHE record:
A road of some uncertainty at both ends, but with good straight stretches of modern road and confirmatory excavtion in its middle lengths, and a largish settlement astride it at Lower Hacheston [see Associated Monument Records]. Like other East Anglian roads it seems to have been making (eastward) for the unlocated but clearly important centre of Sitomagus in the Yoxford/Dunwich area. [See OS Linear Archive for bibliography to 1975, 1940's air photo coverage, and field investigations 1973 and 1979].
