On the 14th August 2014 an archaeological evaluation was undertaken in the garden of 7 Church Street, Chesterton, Cambridge (TL 4618 5970). The archaeological works were carried out prior to the demolition of the property in order to construct four new dwellings on the site.
Modern services, mature trees and areas of paving across the garden restricted the land available to sample. The two excavated trenches revealed the site to have been heavily quarried during the 17-18th centuries with high levels of lightly abraded 16th to 18th century pottery, glass, brick and animal bone being recorded.
