Type and Period (1)
2004: An excavation was carried out in the grounds of Bury St Edmunds Abbey, after an area was found to be at risk of collapse, to inform any decisions making on any remedial works required. The area of subsidence was located in the area of the Prior’s House. Removal of the topsoil revealed the top of an L-shaped section of flint and mortar wall. Stacked stone blocks were found outside the line of the wall to the south and west. Beneath the walls were corrugated iron sheets and wooden beams which had collapsed into the space between the walls. This is thought to be from an excvation carried out in the 1930s. Underneath this was a staircase running east to west (S1).
