On the 14th of February 2012 Oxford Archaeology East monitored the removal of top soil and subsoil from an area measuring 285sqm adjacent to the bowling green at Coronation playing fields Marham in advance of the construction of a multi use games area (MUGA). Although the area is close to the scheduled monument of Marham Abbey. No archaeological features were observed, possibly because the ground disturbance was not deep enough to expose archaeological deposits. However, a small number of archaeological finds were recovered during the monitoring; a whetstone and a few sherds of medieval and post medieval pottery.
