The proposed development area (PDA) is situated on a promontory overlooking the confluence of the River Orwell and Belstead Brook. Such a topographically favourable situation would normally have a high potential for archaeological material from all periods. However, the ground levels within the PDA were extensively altered during the construction of the shopping complex in 1969 and this disturbance will have had a considerable affect on the potential for any archaeology to survive within the PDA.
