An archaeological evaluation by trial-trenching was carried out in June 2011 in advance of development on land to the rear of White Gates, Sudbury Road, Lavenham, Suffolk.
The evaluation uncovered no significant archaeological deposits and has shown that this site has not been the focus of any significant activity in the past. The artefactual evidence suggests some limited activity in the vicinity during the post-medieval period as well as in later prehistory, most likely during the Bronze Age, although this is not associated with any archaeological features.
