Significance of the results:
Archaeological monitoring was carried out at land adjacent to 11 Weavers Lane, Sudbury, Suffolk during groundworks for underpinning of a building on the grounds of this address. 11-12 Weavers Lane itself is a Grade II* listed building, and evidence of the town’s late Anglo-Saxon/early medieval defensive ditch has been found close by to the development site.
Sudbury itself is a prosperous market town with Anglo-Saxon origins, with evidence of earlier human activity found. Unfortunately work carried out during groundworks were were too limited to reveal or confirm archaeological remains.
