On 13th July 2016 OA East opened 4 evaluation trenches in advance of the proposed development of a single house at 53 High Street, Chippenham, Cambridgeshire (TL 6642 6983). The site lies immediately east of the 12th century Church of Saint Margaret in the centre of the village of Chippenham. In total a length of 45m of trench was opened. A single small mortar-filled pit was exposed in the side of Trench 1, closest to the church yard. This was undated but may relate to the construction of part of the church or one of its monuments, or perhaps to later standing buildings nearby. No archaeology was found across the rest of the site and the finds assemblage was extremely small, with all three artefacts abraded.
