Between 22nd and 23rd of July 2019, Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological evaluation comprising a single 15m-long trench in the car park to the north of the Regal Theatre, Stowmarket. The evaluation revealed no archaeological features and no artefacts or ecofacts were recovered. Below the modern car park layers, a possible former topsoil and thick make-up deposit were revealed, which combined extended to a depth in excess of 1.2m, at which point excavation ceased. Natural geology was not reached in the trench, presumably because this part of the car park lies approximately 2m higher than the adjacent Ipswich Street. Cartographic evidence suggests that this ground levelling was related to the construction of the Regal Theatre in the 1930s.
