On the 8th of May 2001, an archaeological evaluation was undertaken at 0.475 hectares of land off Fen Road, Parson Drove (TF 3676 0840) by staff of the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit. The work was carried out in advance of a proposed housing development. Eight trenches were excavated across the site to ascertain the presence of absence of archaeological remains. Besides the evidence for nineteenth and twentieth century activity in the form of a roadside ditch and land drains, no archaeological remains and/or deposits were uncovered. Lack of archaeological evidence is likely to be due to the location of the development site away from the roddons that had been occupied in Roman and medieval times.
