Between 5th and 7th of September 2017 Oxford Archaeology East carried out a post-demolition trial trench evaluation along Gloucester Road and within the Walled Garden area of Brampton Park House in the former RAF Brampton base, Brampton, Cambridgeshire (centred on TL 2069 7022). A total of four evaluation trenches were excavated, two within the garden and two along Gloucester Road.
Gloucester Road and most of the Walled Garden area had been heavily disturbed by the footings of twentieth century houses, RAF buildings and services that were previously located on the site.
A partially intact soil profile survived in places within the Walled Garden area along with three archaeological features. These comprised a single east to west aligned medieval ditch, from which 11-13th century pottery was recovered, and truncated sections of two undated north-west to south-east aligned gullies.
