Full Description

An archaeological monitoring was carried out during demolition and rebuilding at 30-31 College Lane, Bury St Edmunds. The excavation of footing trenches exposed the base of a flint wall fronting onto College Lane. This wall was in two stages with the earliest at least 0.5m wide but narrowing to c. 0.4m to the west. There were no bricks included in the wall but a group of peg tiles that were part of the original construction are likely to be either late medieval or early post medieval in date. The standing building was exposed as a 19th century infill construction built between a house and garden wall. There were two wells on the plot, one of which was still open that predated the demolished building (S1).
