In January 2014 OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief on the Wistow Rising Main at Warboys, Cambridgeshire (TL 2943 8037). The monitoring was carried out on reception pits for directional drilling during construction of a new water mains.
To the south of the site a medieval field boundary was encountered immediately to the south of the present day field boundary. This is likely to have formed part of a rectilinear enclosure around the churchyard, to the north. A post-medieval field boundary, aligned east to west, was seen to the north of the site on the same alignment as a nearby existing boundary. It is suggested that this represented the original field boundary, which has subsequently migrated to the north.
