An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land at the Suffolk Punch Stud, Hollesley Bay Colony on the 4th November 2009. Two trenches were excavated to investigate the area of a proposed new tarmac car park to serve the recently built visitor centre on the site. An undated pit feature and a ditch of later Iron Age date were identified, demonstrating that the archaeological activity found under the visitor centre does extend through this new area. It is believed that further work may be appropriate prior to or during the construction of the new tarmac surface and the last length of the new access road to the site.
