Summary

An archaeological evaluation was carried out in an area of land immediately adjacent to West Lodge, The Street, East Bergholt, in advance of the construction of an extension to an existing house. A single trench was excavated which revealed a series of red-brick wall bases on a yellow cemented gravel foundation. These are the remnants of a range of buildings as marked on a late 19th century map. Between the walls a natural subsoil of grey silty sand and gravel was noted below an overburden of sand, gravel and brick rubble, which formed the sub-base for a hard surface, or a dark topsoil towards the
northern end of the trench. No archaeological features were identified and no artefacts of any period were recovered.
