2004: Evaluation. Small circular spread of silty sand containing a single fragment of struck flint, interpreted as a small patch of surviving later prehistoric ground surface, located in the vicinity of a Bronze Age urn findspot (IPS 104). In the North West part of the site the evaluation revealed reclamation material overlying river and flood plain deposits relating to the former course of the River Gipping. Two modern ditches were recorded in the SE part of the site (S1).
2004: Desk Based assessment identified a high potential for archaeological remains from the prehistoric to modern periods. There is evidence form the site for a Bronze Age cremation cemetery and there is likely to have been Anglo-Saxon settlement associated with the nearby Boss Hall and Hadleigh Cemeteries. The area was also the site of an extensive factory complete as well as two branches of railway which have likely disturbed the survival of archaeological deposits (S2).
