An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land at Little Sheringham Court, Milton Road, Stowmarket (TM 0517 5843; HER ref. SKT 058) in April 2010. During this work, archaeological features, consisting of ditches, pits, post-holes, and planting features associated with formal gardens, were recorded and artefacts ranging from the prehistoric to the post-medieval periods were recovered. These findings suggested aside from the later activity, an area of possibly significant medieval occupation existed within the site with a back ground of low level prehistoric activity.
