Oxford Archaeology East excavated two evaluation trenches on the 28th November 2016 at Boyton Hall Farm (TL 673 466), on the northern edge of Haverhill, Suffolk.
A crushed chalk surface pressed into the underlying subsoil layer was identified in Trench 2, located in the south-east comer of the site. Test-pitting of the surface yielded four sherds of 13th-15th century pottery. To the west, the edge of a large pond was found at the southern end of Trench 1. The pond is depicted on the 1899 Ordnance Survey first edition map, but was backfilled in recent years and contained fragments of concrete sheet asbestos.
The late medieval or early post-medieval surface is likely to be the remnants of a yard associated the former Chapel Farm or earlier chapel depicted on Hodskinson's 1783 map of Suffolk.
