A program of earthwork survey in advance of the development of a new carpark at Ickworth Park, and archaeological monitoring during the site strip identified several very minor earthworks which were generally associated with 19th-20th century deposits of building rubble. Any archaeological evidence, such as cut features associated with the pattern of earthworks surrounding the site, is likely to be preserved at depth below these modern deposits.
