Between 30th October and 2nd November 2018 Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) carried out a trenched evaluation at Land West of Wattisfield Road, Walsham le Willows, Suffolk (TM 0057 7194). The evaluation, commissioned by New Hall Properties (Eastern) Ltd, comprised the excavation of 26 trenches. Most of the trenches contained no archaeological features or deposits.
The alignment of a former boundary ditch was revealed within two of the trenches and produced ceramic artefacts dated to the 18th-20th century. This ditch may therefore be equated to a pre-existing sub-division of the field shown on a historical map of the parish dating from 1817. Trenching also identified a total of three natural tree-bole features displaying evidence for being cleared/burnt out by fire. None of these features were considered suitable for environmental sampling and the recent finds were not retained.
