Type and Period (1)
A programme of archaeological work including standing building recording, production of a brief airfield history and trial trench evaluation was carried out at RAF Woodbridge in advance of its redevelopment to house the 23 Engineers (Air Assault). A photographic record (monochrome prints and 3.2 megapixel digital backup was taken) of all the buildings within the Development Area was made. Two of the buildings were also subject to a measured survey. A total of thirteen evaluation trenches (totalling c. 750m2) were excavated and these revealed no significant archaeological features. Numerous modern services were found to have affected much of the site. A single area of protected heathland was not accessible at the time of the evaluation and further work (monitoring of the heathland relocation, followed by trial trenching) was recommended in order to assess the survival of archaeological deposits in the area during a later stage of the development (S1).
