Archaeological monitoring was carried out on land at 55, Fore Street, Framlingham (TM 2870 6340; FML 051). Monitoring work was carried out at the above site during the excavation of foundations for an extension to the house. A number of features of archaeological interest were recorded during the monitoring work. A large cut feature, possibly a ditch, was recorded which may be the medieval town ditch. A timber structure was revealed within this ditch which may be the supports for a walkway or bridge. One of the posts of this structure was dated by radiocarbon to 1330AD +/_ 30. The ditch was infilled prior to the early 18th century when pits were dug into a thick make-up layer filling the top of the ditch.
