Full Description

Monitoring of ground works for an extension to The Old Slaughterhouse, Chediston Street, Halesworth, was carried out as a condition of the planning consent in order to record any archaeological evidence revealed by the groundworks. The excavated building footprint revealed made-up ground to a depth of over 1m which may have at least partly been deposited during the construction of the adjacent Old Slaughterhouse. Post-medieval finds were common throughout the made up layers but one medieval sherd was also recovered. At the base of the excavated footprint two features were recorded cutting the natural clay subsoil, each containing finds of post-medieval date (S1).
