In June 2018 Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) carried out an archaeological evaluation at 56-58 Chesterton Road, Cambridge (TL 4539 5948). A single trench measuring 5.2m x 1.1m was opened revealing a single northwest-southeast aligned post-medieval wall, a pit also dating to the post medieval period and two natural layers. The archaeological investigation determined that prior to the current building on site, there was likely another building that fronted onto Chesterton Road in the post-medieval period (late 17th century onwards), and the features discovered in the evaluation relate to this. Beneath these features was a layer, possibly an alluvial deposit as a result of the nearby river Cam flooding.
