Between the 14th and 19th of January 2019, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) undertook a trial trench evaluation at West Fen Farm, Whitemoor Road, March, Cambridgeshire (TL 5365 2983) on behalf of RKE Biogroup. A total of 19 trenches, each 30 metres long, were opened.
The site lies directly on top of a roddon, thought to be an old channel of the river Nene. The evaluation revealed a series of natural creeks/water channels cut into the surface of the roddon. Additionally, three field boundary ditches, all probably dating to the late 19th or early 20th century, were revealed on an east to west alignment. A single fragment of animal bone and fragments of three iron horseshoes were recovered from these boundary ditches, while a small assemblage of pottery was recovered from the topsoil.
