Between the 6th and 7th July 2020, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) conducted an archaeological evaluation of a residential development (Plot 2) at Pond Farm, High Street, Witcham, Cambridgeshire. This was remediation work to inform the Planning Authority on the archaeological character of the available development area as foundations had already been inserted in advance of the required archaeological evaluation. A total of two 10m long trenches were excavated immediately to the east of the pre-constructed strip foundations which revealed a ditch and a post hole but did not recover any artefacts. In addition, the vast majority of the plot’s historical boundary wall along High Street had been demolished during the recent works, with only a c.3m long section remaining at the site’s south-eastern corner. This remaining part was subject to photogrammetry recording with examination of its bricks able to determine a probable early 19th century origin.
