Full Description

An archaeological monitoring was carried out on land adjacent to and west of Beeches Farm, Bardwell, Suffolk. Throughout the 13 trenches, 5 compacted chalk surfaces were uncovered as well as the foundations for one E-W aligned and another N-S aligned wall. These were thought to be post-medieval and associated with a farmyard building complex that housed cattle. Up to three undated pit/ditch cuts were also identified. Two finds indicated material of potentially medieval date, but these had probably been reused or were redeposited. Modern disturbance was present in many of the trenches, though usually only to a limited depth that did not truncate the archaeological levels (S1).
