Type and Period (4)
Monitoring of groundworks at Castle Hill Recreation ground, Haverhill identified demolition material, possible robbed out wall footings, brick foundations and traces of an internal floor and external yards, all relating to the former Castle Farm. The recovered brick and tile debris indicated a 17th/18th century date for the farmhouse construction. There was no evidence for Haverhill Castle, a potential fortified medieval manor house which is believed to have once stood upon the site medieval although this may be due to the heavy park landscaping. It is also possible however that this building may survive elsewhere within the original moated enclosure (S1).
