Cambridge County Council Archaeological Field Unit was commissioned by Morston Hall Limited to undertake an evaluation in the grounds of Morston Hall, Morston, Norfolk. The work took place on the 10th and 11th September 2006.
The evaluation was required to establish the presence (or otherwise) of formal pathways or other garden features indicated on the 1838 Tithe Map. Two trenches were excavated by machine within the footprint of the proposed development area near the south-west corner of the garden.
A single deposit was identified in both trenches. It was probably a levelling layer, perhaps relating to the re-building of Morston Hall in the late 18th and 19th centuries. No other archaeological features were present.
