During March 1994, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council undertook an archaeological assessment at London Road, Godmanchester (TL 2510 6974). The work was carried out at the request of Andrew S Campbell Associates on behalf of their clients as part of the planning process.

The site is adjacent to the presumed route of Roman Ermine Street only about 0.5k south of the Roman town. Because of the common Roman practice of locating their cemeteries along the approaches to towns, it was felt that the site held significant archaeological potential.

A series of features running parallel to London Road proved to contain 19th century ceramic field drains. No features of earlier date were present.
