On the 25th of June, 1998 an archaeological evaluation took place on land in the centre of Winwick owned by Mr Veazey (TL 105 808), prior to the construction of three dwellings which included garages and associated ground works. The work was carried out by the author on behalf of the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council and in response to a Brief set by the County Archaeology Office (Kaner 2611198). The objective of the project were to determine the location, extent, date, character, condition, significance, and quality of any surviving archaeological remains liable to be threatened bu the proposed development.

The complete absence of archaeological features within the subject area may indicate that the area was not utilised in the past or utilised for activities which have left no archaeological trace. However the presence of modern material in the topsoil indicates that disturbance has taken place on the site in the past 50 or so years: the possibility that any archaeological evidence which may have existed has been destroyed cannot be discounted. Only part of the area was available for evaluation at this time; it is recommended that an observation should be made of the remaining area as soon as it becomes available.
