2000: A Desk-based assessment of the site concluded that the western side of the site consisted of buildings formerly used not as a tannery but for the allied trade of a fellmonger. The site may only have been sued as a fellmongers during the 19th and early 20th century. The eastern side of the site was an early 19thc etnury maltings and later a steam mill (S1).
Trenched evaluation followed though this failed to identify evidence for use as a Tannery (no tanning pits). Evaluation of a site north of bridge street identified archaeological fetaures associated with the medieval management of the naturally formed Framlingham Mere. These included a mill leat, mere boundary ditch and mill bank, all previously known from documentary and map evidence. Structural evidence was limited to features of indeterminate function on the western bank of the River Ore. While the association of these features with a watermill could not be ruled out, it was considered more likely that they were related to an earlier bridge or river revetment structure. (S2)
