Four evaluation trenches were excavated in an area immediately north-east of the Old Norwich Road, prior to its redevelopment for housing, in the parish of Coddenham, in Suffolk. The site had most recently been the location of a Grade II listed house (subsequently divided to form the Pink Cottages) and gardens, although the building burnt down in 2014.

Post-medieval quarrying was recorded, alongside three late medieval to post-medieval parallel ditches that are probably field boundaries. Two further undated quarry pits were also recorded, infilled with sterile sand and gravel deposits, thought to largely be the result of natural processes associated with the River Gipping.
