Three C16 bricks from Redgrave Hall in Ipswich Museum (S2(S4). Basil Brown visited site in February 1953, when he searched for parts of coat of arms above S door of Hall amongst rubble in doorway. He took photographs of doorway and parts of the park. He records that during dry summers it is possible to walk across the artificial lake S of the Hall, on an old road which led from Redgrave Hall to Botesdale Lodge via Jacobites Wood, submerged when the lake was constructed (S3).
