Between the 3rd and 5th April 2017, OA East conducted an evaluation at Woodstock, 63 Fowlmere Road, Heydon, Cambridgeshire (TL 4302 4051). The site is immediately adjacent to the southeastern end of the Scheduled Ancient
Monument known as the Bran or Heydon Ditch, an Anglo‐Saxon earthwork stretching for 5km northwest, one of four such monuments in Cambridgeshire.
Three trenches were opened totaling c. 46m in length. These revealed a metalled surface or possible track way of Roman date in Trenches 2 and 3, at the southwest of the evaluated area. To the northeast in Trench 2 was a pit and to the southeast in Trench 1 was a ditch, both of early medieval date.
Much of the proposed development footprint is currently occupied by a 1960s bungalow which has probably truncated earlier deposits, considerable landscaping has occurred to the rear (southwest) of the site.
