In August and September 1994 an archaeological watching brief was carried out by the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council, on behalf of Cambridge Water Company, during the layer of a water pipeline between Bluntisham water tower and Earith Road, Colne. The watching brief revealed very few in situ archaeological remains but two Palaeolithic stone tools were retrieved from river gravels removed from the pipe trench to the east of Colne Road, Bluntisham. to the west of the road prehistoric pottery was noted from a possible pit, and Colne-type medieval pottery and post-medieval pottery was found which probably derived from manuring activities.
