Between the 11th and 12th April 2019, Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological trial trench evaluation at land adjoining the Village Hall, Manningtree Road, Stutton, Suffolk.
A total of eleven 20m-long trenches were excavated. Three features revealed in Trench 1, in the southern extremity of the site, were of post-medieval date, and included a small ditch terminus and two possible pits. The ditch lay broadly parallel with Manningtree Road, although its function, and that of the pits, is uncertain. The absence of other features and finds from this trench suggests that this roadside location was not a former building plot.
Three further undated ditches were revealed in the southern part of the site. None of these ditches were depicted on historical maps, nor aligned with the present day boundaries. There is also no direct correlation in their alignments with the dominant axis of linear crop-marks recorded by aerial photography c. 200m to the north of the site (STU 008).
