An archaeological survey was carried out at Malton Farm, Orwell prior to the construction of a golf course. An area of 91 hectares was field walked. A few prehistoric flints, some sparse scatters of Iron Age and Roman sherds, two early Saxon sherds, and slighter denser scatters of Medieval pottery were recovered, but no buildings or other identifiable features were noted. The finds suggest Prehistoric activity in the west of the study area and a Roman and Medieval settlement site to the south-west of Malton Rook Grove. Historical records suggest a small Medieval village at Malton, deserted during the 15th century.
