An archaeological assessment took place on an area of approximately 10 hectares to the west of Little Paxton prior to the proposed development by Potton Investments Ltd. Work was carried out by Cambridgeshire Archaeology.
Results indicate Late Neolithic/Bronze Age activity. Property boundaries, drainage systems and possibly structural evidence from field walking suggests flint tool production and treatment of skins taking place in this period within the assessment area.
