Between the 1st and 3rd of November 2016, Oxford Archaeology East undertook a trial trench evaluation at the former G&J Peck Ltd farming supplies depot, Ely, Cambridgeshire (TL 5478 8037).
Two parallel ditches were identified and whilst they were undated, their corresponding orientation with a lane on the 1885 OS map which bounded the north-eastern edge of the site, would indicate a post-medieval or early modern date. The southern half of the site had been levelled with the build up of a very large amount of modern overburden, whereas the trench closest to Lisle Lane showed that this end of the site had been severely truncated.
Low levels of finds were recovered from the layers of modern build up and consisted of brick, glazed earthenware pottery (16th-18th century) and a mid 19th century bone toothbrush. Evidence for soil and groundwater contamination was also identifiable across the southern extents of the site.
