Summary

In March 2016 Suffolk Archaeology Community Interest Company undertook a detailed fluxgate gradiometer survey on land outlined for a proposed housing development to the south of Old Stowmarket Road, Woolpit, Suffolk. No
archaeological features of obvious significance were identified using this technique.

The detailed fluxgate gradiometer survey prospected six positive linear trends indicative of post-medieval field boundaries, linear areas of magnetic enhancement associated with modern quarrying, three negative linears deriving from modern agricultural practices, a single curvilinear anomaly of geological or archaeological derivation and fourteen discrete
anomalies identified as potential rubbish pits.
