Fieldwork in December 2004 involved the rapid survey of Cley, Salthouse and Kelling fresh marshes. Areas of grazing marsh, drainage channels and patches of reedbed were examined, with viewing from sea defence banks and footpaths.
Known sites monitored included a World War Two Prisoner of War camp (NHER 27793), World War Two defences, sea defence banks (including NHER 24485 and 27186), medieval/post medieval wall (NHER 39689) and a post medieval windmill mound (NHER 39768).
New sites recorded included banks, ditches, drainage features, mounds (possibly associated with saltworking), building material and a spigot mortar emplacement.
See assessment report (S1) for further details. This work is also noted in (S2).
The associated archive has been deposited with the Norwich Castle Museum (NWHCM : 2017.421).
