This archaeological Desk Based Assessment was undertaken to inform the planning process in advance of the proposed development of an Outdoor Sports andLeisure facility at Oakes Farm, Carlton Colville, Suffolk. It includes an examination of the Suffolk Historic Environment Record (HER), an aerial photographic survey, a historic cartographic search and a site inspection.

The DBA has placed the Proposed Development Area (PDA) within its immediate archaeological landscape and has identified moderate potential for the preservation of archaeological deposits from the medieval and post-medieval periods and low to moderate potential for Anglo-Saxon remains. The PDA has been placed in a wider prehistoric landscape with low to moderate potential for the preservation of remains relating to the Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age periods.
