Between the 29th April and the 7th May 2009, OA East carried out an archaeological watching and recording brief at St Andrew's Church, High St, Oakington (TL 414 648). The monitoring was carried out during machine stripping of the graveyard burial soil in the area of the meeting room and the excavation of the main service trench. The final part of the watching brief too place in September as the service trench was excavated across the High St.
The excavations for the meeting room and much of the service trench (eastern half) did not penetrate through the graveyard soils and therefore no archaeological features other than burials were seen. In the western part of the service trench, where it became deeper, three early ditches were recorded, oriented approximately northeast to southwest. The latest of these ditches is dated to the late 12th/early 13th centuries.
