Between the 26th-27th August 2020, Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at Hall Farm Stables, Cambridge Road, Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire. This was remediation work to inform the Planning Authority on the archaeological character of the available development area as a manège had already been constructed in advance of the required archaeological evaluation. Three c.15m long trenches were excavated immediately east of the manège which revealed two small ditches and two small pits.
Although no datable artefacts were recovered from these features, a quantity of cattle bone recovered from one of the ditch fills probably represents a dump of butchery waste generated by the nearby village. The boundary ditches do not appear on 19th and 20th century maps of the site. Therefore, these features probably represent minor plot divisions and agricultural activity associated with the arable land of Hall Farm, documented to encompass the site as far back as the 16th century.
