An archaeological monitoring was carried out on groundworks during the installation of pumping stations and new foul drains at Cockfield Hall, Yoxford, Suffolk. This application also covered groundworks associated with the burying of overhead electricity cables across Lock Meadow, a water meadow to the northwest of the hall complex. Site visits were made by Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service, Field Projects Team, to examine the trenches and excavated pumping stations, between August and November 2008. The walls of the trenches and pits were examined in order to observe any archaeological layers or features exposed during these groundworks. Cockfield Hall is a Grade I Listed Building of special architectural and historic interest, with an associated complex of buildings containing eight Grade II listed structures. The hall also lies within the Area of Archaeological Importance recorded in the County Historic Environment Record, on the northern side of the Yox Valley. During these groundworks, two possible archaeological features were identified and a small quantity of medieval pottery was recovered.
