On the 12th of April 2012 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a trial trench evaluation on the site of the Old Village Hall, Stradishall, Suffolk (TL 74777 52448). The work was carried out ahead of the development of a detached dwelling.
One trench was excavated on the plot of the proposed building which revealed an east to west aligned ditch and a modern pit. Due to the alignment of the ditch with the road and its location within the historic centre of the village, it is possible it represents a boundary ditch of a medieval or post-medieval plot. The lack of artefactual evidence and any other associated features suggests peripheral activity, as well as activity associated with the site’s modern use as a village hall.
