A proposal for a by-pass between the A15 and A16 around Market Deeping has led to a "desk top" evaluation of the area within Cambridgeshire county boundary. The aims of the study were: firstly, to assess whether there were likely to be overriding archaeological objections to the proposal, and secondly, to determine what fieldwork would be appropriate to asses the survival and importance of the archaeological remains in the area in question.
The study shows that the area is part of an important archaeological landscape and that further fieldwork is necessary. It is possible that features of archaeological importance may be encountered and recommendations are given for fieldwork are given but there are no recognised archaeological objections to the route, nor reasons to suggest realignments at this stage.
