Between 22nd and 23rd May 2017 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation comprising five trenches at Whitwell Farm, Offord Cluny, Cambridgeshire (centred on TL 2196 6739), in advance of a housing development.
Four of the five trenches contained no archaeological remains and were disturbed by large sand extraction pits. Trench 5 contained wall foundations for a 19th-century outbuilding facing onto High Street, as well as associated remains including an outhouse or latrine pit. The location of the building is within a house plot depicted on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of 1885, although the house itself is shown slightly closer to High Street. A possible medieval or post-medieval boundary ditch was found towards the back of the 19th century property.
