An archaeological evaluation was undertaken ahead of the proposed redevelopment of the southern end of New Road, Ixworth with five trenches being excavated in the rear gardens of Nos. 25 to 24 New Road.
The site appeared heavily truncated with minimal survival of the archaeological deposits. Two groups of three postholes were identified with one group being post-medieval in date and the other remaining undated. A linear ditch was also identified but was probably a natural feature. Although Roman and Saxon sites have been recorded in the surrounding area no evidence for these periods survived on this site.
