On 7th April 2009 OA East conducted an archaeological evaluation at St Neots Community College, St Neots, centred on TL 1839 5899. The proposal was for the development of the Community Centre facilities within the grounds of the existing college. Initially two trenches were to be excavated. One 10m x 2m and the second 5m x 2m. However, due to the very high density of modern services crossing the development area a single 10m x 2m trench was excavated with a second phase of work to be undertaken once the site had been cleared of modern services, prior to development. A significant level of modern make-up was recorded throughout the trench, which varied in depth between 0.62m and 0.57m from north to south. The modern soil deposits sealed a 0.25m thick layer of dark grey brown sandy silt that appeared to form a layer of earlier topsoil, probably buried during the construction or landscaping of the College grounds. The underlying geology comprised silty gravel deposits. No archaeological features were recorded during the evaluation.
