Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation was carried out in the garden of Highfields, Bury Road, Lavenham in advance of the construction of three new dwellings with associated infrastructure. Located to the north of the medieval town of Lavenham, the development site is surrounded by a 19th century train station and mill, and several World War II military features. Fifteen features were identified during the evaluation, consisting of five pits, four postholes, two linears, two brick wall foundations, a brick floor and one unidentified garden feature. Two later prehistoric flints were identified, one from pit F6 and one unstratified. All the remaining features and finds were of post-medieval to modern date. The wall foundations and floor were part of a late 19th/early 20th century stable block seen on the OS maps.
