Plans for a housing development by Cambridge City Council on the site of 'Histon Road Allotments' (actually on Cambridge Road, Impington) at TL 445 612, gave rise to an archaeological evaluation. This need was identified by the County Archaeologist's Office (CAO) of Cambridgeshire County Council, after a brief for the work was prepared by Tony Hurley. The Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council presented a research design involving test pits and trenching in the available allotments. A total of 46 test pits and 7 trenches were dug and a notable lack of surviving archaeology was recorded. Test pits failed to identify any remains. The only significant features found were a series of undated ditches in Trenches I, IV and VI. All are likely to be drainage ditches associated with the agricultural use of the area which has taken place since at least Roman times.
