An archaeological monitoring was carried out on land immediately adjoining the west side of the King Edward VII Memorial Hall, Newmarket, Suffolk. This revealed a well, which may have been medieval, or post-medieval, a post-medieval brick structure, and an undated chalk surface. No finds were recovered except for some possible post-medieval CBM from the well. The site was significantly disturbed, particularly in the footprint of the recently demolished western side of the hall.
