An archaeological evaluation was carried out within the grounds of The Priory Hotel, Bury St Edmunds,which is situated within a large part of the precinct of the Medieval Franciscan Friary at Babwell.

A small test trench, hand excavated to the level of the undisturbed natural, identified a large feature aligned with an existing portion of the precinct wall, which is situated nearby, and possibly represented a trench for 'robbing' material from the foundations of a demolished stretch of the wall.
