An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Padnal, Littleport (TL 5745 8626) to inform the planning process in advance of the construction of 80 dwellings and associated works. The work was carried out by the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council between 22nd and 29th January 2002.
Nine trenches were excavated, eight contained ditches, which have been interpreted as drainage features. One ditch produced artefactual material dating to the nineteenth/twentieth centuries AD, other linear features contained twentieth century land drains. However, most features contained no dating material at all.
