On the 2nd of September 2002, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at Spinney Abbey farm, Wicken, Cambridgeshire (TL 5550 7184). Mr. R.J. Fuller commissioned the work.

Four trenches with a total length of 45m were opened, constituting a 5% sample of the development area. Archaeological features were found in all four trenches. These consisted of ditches and pits. The only dating evidence to be recovered was from a small pit in Trench 4, pottery provisionally dated as Anglo-Saxon. The remainder of the finds comprised animal bones and daub fragments that were recovered from the small pit in Trench 4 and animal bones from a small ditch in Trench 2.
