Conditional planning consent for the construction of a garage at the Old Vicarage, Church Street, Sudbury required archaeological monitoring of the associated groundworks. Pits and layers of overburden were identified to a depth of 1.7m from the ground surface, however, as the trenches had to be shored to prevent collapse, very little of the trench sections were fully visible. Medieval pottery sherds and a fragment of human bone were recovered from the upcast spoil.
