Summary

An archaeological evaluation was carried out on an area of land adjacent to 17, Beeches Road, West Row, Mildenhall, Suffolk, in advance of a small housing development. The site is situated on the corner of Beeches Road and Mildenhall Road.

Three trenches were excavated revealing a natural subsoil of chalk or pale grey chalky silt at depths of between 0.4m to 0.8m. A single pit and a spread of chalk rubble, both of which yielded material dated to the 18th century, were recorded in a trench in the area that fronted onto Mildenhall Road. The other two trenches were devoid of archaeological features.
