A proposed development, covering an area of c12.5ha, located immediately to the northeast of Soham village, lies within an area of potentially rich archaeological remains. There are significant remains of all periods in the vicinity, although these are not known from the site itself, probably as a result of it being in part covered by alluvium. The density of past activity expected in such a fen-edge position implies however that this site lies on the Gault clays which might reduce the potential for pre-Roman activity, however medieval ridge and furrow and a relict field pattern have survived on land not enclosed in the 19th century.
