April 2016. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Beauty National Mapping Programme.
The cropmarks of an area of pit-like features, some of which have the appearance of possible sunken-featured buildings of potential Saxon date, may be visible on aerial photographs (S1-S4). Parts of this site may have previously been recorded under RMS 004. The site consists of a large spread of pits - the spatial extent of which has been defined by a polygonal. However it must be noted that a high number of pit-like features are visible in this area and are assumed to be of natural/geological origin and it is feasible that some or all of these pits are non-archaeological. The larger, angular and more distinct of these have been mapped individually.
Also included within this site are some fragmentary ditches and field boundaries which are broadly aligned the same as the surrounding medieval to post medieval landscape
