Abstract:
Archaeology, Excavation and Surveys completed an archaeological trenched evaluation between the 2nd April 2014 to 10th April 2014 on approximately 0.18h hectares of former industrial land in the centre of Stowmarket. Five trenches were positioned across the site representing a 5% sample of the proposed development area (PDA). A further trench (TP 1) was started adjacent and parallel to the River Gipping, however due to the close proximity of the river, depth of trench and unsafe soil conditions this was abandoned and repositioned further to the north west. Alluvial deposits were found in all the trenches representing the location of the site on the flood plains of the River Gipping. These deposits were on average 3m in depth and consisted of dark organic silts. Archaeological features of significance were found in three of the five trenches. In trench 2, a 15th century kiln was recorded. Environmental evidence suggests that it was regularly used, possibly for corn drying. In trenches 4 and 5 the foundations and floor of a 19th century malthouse were discovered, the floor in trench 4 sealing large sherds of a dripping dish dating to the 15th to 16th century. Ordnance survey maps from 1886 to 1927 show the presence of a tramline on the site, a possible branch of which can still be found outside of the site on the north western perimeter.
