Between the 5th and 9th of October 2020 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a trial trench evaluation on land south of 6 Hinton Way, Wilburton, Cambridgeshire (TL 48080 75150). The work was carried out in advance of a proposed residential development by Etopia Wilburton Ltd.
A total of ten trial trenches measuring 25m by 2m were excavated during the evaluation. Three of the trenches each revealed a single ditch and the remaining seven trenches were devoid of archaeological features. Two of the ditches (in Trench 3 and Trench 4) each produced a single sherd of medieval pottery whilst the third (in Trench 2) produced no dating evidence.
The results of the evaluation suggest limited activity prior to the main occupation of the site during the modern period, when it was utilised as an orchard with associated buildings.
