Full Description

In December 2010 an archaeological evaluation was carried out on behalf of Magnus Opus at Weybread House, Suffolk ahead of the construction of a swimming pool within the garden to the south-west of the house. The single 15m by 1.8m wide trench uncovered three ditches of probable medieval or post medieval date aligned parallel with Mill Road and a modern, clay filled, pit. The ditches were probably part of a drainage system used to reclaim land from the river margins. A single piece of 13th- to 14th-century pottery was recovered from the northernmost ditch (S1).
