An archaeological monitoring was carried out on land off Green Road, Haughley at Mere Cottage. This revealed the north-east limit of the medieval Haughley Mere. The conditions for the monitoring were acceptable, although the waterlogging across the site made interpreting some of the trench profiles difficult. No finds were recovered. The northern strip of the site was not monitored as the contractor failed to notify SCCAS Field Team of the groundworks commencing (S1).
