Summary

An archaeological monitoring was carried out on land at Highfield Nursery, Chesterfield Drive, Ipswich during the erection of an extension to the nursery. No deposits or archaeological features were recorded during the monitoring work, and it can be demonstrated that the extension lies entirely within a known extraction pit seen on early plans of the area. The extraction pit was filled with 20th century rubbish, none of which was retained.
