In December 1994, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out a recording brief at Hinxton Hall (TL 4966/4466) during the first phase of landscaping and excavation of a lake. This work is part of the development of Hinxton Hall site by Fuller Peiser on behalf of The Welcome Trust. A number of Roamn ditches were revealed, including a rectangular enclosure and field boundaries, which date from the first to fourth centuries. A series of ditches, a possible fenceline, and a chalk wall formed a boundary which was aligned with the Roman enclosure. The origin of this boundary is unknown, but it appears to have existed and been reinforced for a considerable periods of time before going out of use at the time of emparkment in the mid-nineteenth century. A continuity of land boundaries from the Roman through to the post-medieval periods is suggested.
