Watching brief by P Harp of Plateau during drainage works revealed a well. The well mouth was constructed with unmortared flint and research suggests that the well was capped in the late 18th or early 19th century. It is believed to date from at least the mid-18th century but may be considerably earlier.
A ground penetrating radar survey by M Udyrysz of SUMO of the church interior and land immediately to the south revealed numerous probable and possible burials and a number of uncertain anomalies.
Geophysical and metal detector survey by T Schofield and M Sommers of Suffolk Archaeology Community Interest Company confirmed the location of a buried Second World War tank, one of a pair of Covenanter Mk III (Cruiser V) tanks known to have been buried at the site, the first of which was excavated in 1977 and is currently on display in the Bovington Tank Museum, Dorset. An area of magnetic enhancement was also identified that may identify the location of the first tank that was excavated.
Historic building recording by M Henderson of HB Archaeology & Conservation Ltd during repairs to the south gable of the late 17th century main range.
Test pit evaluation by R Bradley of Worcestershire Archaeology along the proposed route of a fish pass revealed a series of archaeological deposits forming an alluvial sequence consistent with the location of the site in a waterlogged landscape, adjacent to a managed watercourse. While the dating of the alluvial formation remains uncertain, with the exception of a single prehistoric flint flake, the majority of the diagnostic finds from the test pits related to activity from the mid-18th to early 20th centuries.
A metal detector survey by T Schofield and M Sommers of Suffolk Archaeology Community Interest Company recovered artefacts including munitions and domestic items within the partially extant buildings of the former Second World War military camp.
Watching brief by S Nelson of EEHAS during the construction of a disabled access ramp to the Church House, in the north-west of the churchyard, revealed considerable modern disturbance, possibly associated with the construction of the building. Post-medieval glass and pottery were recovered from the disturbed deposit together with a small assemblage of disarticulated animal and human bone. The latter represents at least two individuals, one of whom had a pathological growth on the lower leg, possibly from disease or trauma.
