A geophysical survey has been undertaken as part of an archaeological evaluation of the site of a proposed solar farm at Ellough, Suffolk. The purpose of the survey was to test for evidence of any previously unrecorded archaeological features or deposits within the evaluation area. Conditions at the site appear to be reasonably satisfactory for an investigation of this kind, but the survey has produced only minimal findings. Various land drains and cultivation effects were detected, but findings otherwise were limited to a small number of individual magnetic anomalies potentially representing silted pits or hollows. These are widely dispersed across the site, and so are likely to be of non-archaeological or natural origin. There are no groups or clusters of detectable features to suggest the presence of an archaeological site within the proposed development area.
