Full Description

1994: Evaluation produced late medieval pottery sherds of 13th-15th century date. Two ditches running parallel with the Old Wherstead Road included a quantity of pantile. The fill of both ditches cannot be precisely dated, although a late 15th-16th century date seems likely. Also wall footings of terraced housing (Victorian and later) which have been demolished. Also remnants of a small brick outhouse
South West of the wall footings excavation revealed two rubbish pits which yielded finds of 19th century date.
