On the 12th March 1999 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council undertook an archaeological evaluation within the grounds of Papworth Hospital (TL291 628). Two evaluation trenches were excavated across the area of land to be developed, to ascertain the presence or absence of archaeological remains.

The subsequent investigation of each trench revealed thick deposits of modern debris overlying the remains of an 18th-19th century building. The foundation trenches associated with this building were cut into the natural geology this removing any evidence of earlier occupation that might have occurred within the evaluation trenches.
