In July and August 1993, Cambridgeshire Archaeology conducted an archaeological recording brief, on behalf of Fenland Hydrotech Ltd, along the route of two water pipelines being laid on either side of the A1. These pipelines are being diverted outwards from their existing routes as part of the A1 widening Scheme, and the sections monitored for this recording brief run from Sawtry (TL 1745/8346 and TL 1755/8349) south to near Odd Quarter Wood (TL 1799/8074) and TL 1826/8015) A small number of modern features were recorded, but also the remains of medieval Ridge and Furrow cultivation, ploughed out and invisible on the surface. This was located where the route passes to the north east of the scheduled medieval earthworks, now severely plough damaged themselves, at TL 175/813 (Scheduled Ancient Monument 171)
