An archaeological monitoring was carried out on land at the front and rear of Blox Hall, Hitcham, Suffolk. This uncovered a post-medieval well and ditch-like feature, as well as a deposit possibly relating to a phase of post-medieval house construction. Unstratified medieval and post-medieval pottery and CBM were also recovered. The soil horizons were generally intact, except for minor truncation of the topsoil around the areas close to the house. A survey of the presence of standing water extended the existing plan of the moated enclosures.
