On the 11th June 2013, OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief at 82 Mill Lane, Sawston (TL 4802 4948). The monitoring was carried out after the excavation of foundation trenches for the development of the existing shop/dwelling, in preparation for the Erection of a Bungalow and Garage, the formation of a Driveway and realignment of a Public Right of Way. A further visit was carried out on the 1st of October 2013 to inspect the trenches for the services.
Inspection of the foundation trenches for the bungalow and garage revealed a number of pits. The earliest datable feature was a well in Trench Two the construction of which contained brick rubble and post medieval ceramics. Several pits were identified in both trenches of varying depths, the pits in Trench Two containing Post Medieval glass and ceramics. Also evident was an extensive soil deposit, probably plough soil, in the western side of Trench Two. Although possibly earlier then the well or the pits, no datable archaeology was recovered from this layer. There was no evidence of pre medieval archaeology in either trench.
