On the 4th and 5th November 2002 an archaeological evaluation was carried out by staff from the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council on land to the rear of 28-32 High Street, Melbourn in advance of development.

Three trenches were excavated. One trench was heavily contaminated with modern building debris and hydrocarbons, one trench contained natural features and the third trench contained archaeological features. A series of ditches running parallel to the High Street appear to be drains or property boundaries containing material dating from the medieval and post-medieval periods.
