Northamptonshire Archaeology undertook a desk-based assessment and trial trench excavation of land east of The Granary, Stoke Road, Clare, Suffolk. A moderate quantity of late Neolithic and early Bronze Age worked flint was recovered from the ploughsoil and as residual finds in later features. Residual Roman pottery and tile were also recovered. Medieval remains marked the continuation of a street frontage in a similar style to the properties that survive along Stoke Road to the north-east. A building with associated clay floor, posthole and gully features, a ditch and a pit, were present in the late 12th-14th centuries. Plots were laid out to the rear. A thick windblown soil layer accumulated rapidly as an event, probably during the 14th century. Pits and a ditch cut the windblown layer. Another building was identified in association with a gravel surface and a disturbed layer of floor tile that indicated a property present on the frontage, possibly until the 15th century. Late 19th to early 20th-century quarrying was focused in the north-west of the development area, exploiting patches of sand and gravel (S1).
