An archaeological monitoring and an evaluation were carried out at 157 Bures Road, Great Cornard, Suffolk. The monitoring revealed evidence of a large feature. This may have been a quarrying pit, although it was undated. Alternatively it could also have been a naturally formed feature. The evaluation produced no features. Neither stage of fieldwork uncovered any archaeological finds. The soil stratigraphy seemed largely undisturbed and there is no evidence for archaeological occupation on the site. It is recommended that no further archaeological works be carried out.
