Summary

Evaluation on land at Woodlands, Dunwich Road, Westleton, was required to investigate the archaeological potential of the site. The site had been subject to considerable modern disturbance relating to a recently demolished bungalow.

Three features were recorded in Trench 2, which runs closest to, and parallel with Dunwich Road. These consisted of a NW-SE aligned re-cut ditch, cut by an irregular pit, containing post-medieval building material and pottery. A small number of medieval and late medieval finds were recovered from the site, including a 15th-16th century copper alloy hooked clasp, but these were either intrusive or from unstratified contexts.
