Between the 1st and the 4th of November 2016 OA East carried out an evaluation on land off Gibson Close, Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire. The investigation consisted on six 30m x 1.8m trenches.
Along the northern edge of the site was a single shallow 13th to 14th century ditch on a west to east alignment, with a recut dating to the 16th to 18th centuries just to the south. These ditches seemed to run on a similar alignment to the modern street line of Gibson Close.
In the south-east corner of the site were two post-medieval ditches, also on a west to east alignment, which ran into a shallow hollow, containing post-medieval material at their eastern ends.
The south-east corner contained a number of shallow undated gullies, probably natural variations. A post-medieval ditch, cut from above the subsoil entered the site on a north to south alignment and then turns to the east and heading into the south-east corner of the site.
