The redevelopment involves the construction of a single residential property. A number of features of archaeological interest were recorded during the work. These were two undated pits, a late medieval buried soil and similarly dated post-holes, and an early post-medieval flint and lime mortar foundation representing a building that remained in use into the 19th century. Evidence for the adjacent Lowestoft Porcelain factory was recovered in the form of two fragments of kiln bars (S1).
