An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Red Lion Lane, Sutton NGR TL 4438 7865 in order to inform the planning process. The work was carried out by the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council between the 16th and 18th of August 2000.
Three trenches totalling 78.5m in length, giving a 2.3% sample, were located within the 0.546 hectare area of a proposed housing development. Two trenches (1 and 2) contained features of archaeological origin. Trench 1 contained 3 drainage ditches and one pond feature, finds from this trench included sherds of Thetford ware (900-1200 AD) and Stamford ware (850-1250 AD) and Shelley ware (1150-1350 AD). Trench 2 contained a pond feature, one ditch terminal and two drainage ditches. Finds from this trench included sherds of Ely ware (1150-1350 AD) and Shelley ware (1150-1350 AD). One trench contained only a natural gully and no archaeological features at all.
