Description

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken at Drinkstone Hall, Drinkstone Green, Suffolk, prior to the construction of an extension to the existing 19th century building. Two archaeological features were recorded; one potentially represented an earlier phase of moat (13th century). This was sealed by a layer of re-deposited natural that potentially derived from the excavation of a later, larger moat, the material generated was then used to level the interior of the moated site. The second feature was a shallow wall foundation cut into the layer of re-deposited natural that could potentially be related to an earlier building that previously existed on the site before being demolished during the 19th century.
