Between the 25th and 30th October 2017 OA East carried out a trial trench evaluation at Wigmore Farm, Silver Street, Godmanchester, ahead of the proposed construction of 13 dwellings.
The development area was on the south-western edge of the historic town of Godmanchester.
The evaluation found an area of post-medieval gravel extraction pits in the western half of the site, and the remains of demolished modern farm buildings in the former farmyard. Single pits of potential Roman and medieval date were also found.
Small quantities of post-medieval pottery, ceramic building material and clay tobacco pipe were recovered. Small amounts of residual Late Iron Age and Roman pottery were also recovered.
