In April 2007 CAM ARC, Cambridgeshire County Council (formerly Archaeological Field Unit) undertook a desktop assessment to examine the available historical and archaeological resources in the villages of Winwick and Old Weston and land lying between them, in West Cambridgeshire (centred at TL 10311 79144). Anglian Water commissioned the work. The aim of the assessment was to define the archaeological potential of the subject areas, in advance of the proposed construction of a water pipeline between the two villages, a pumping station in Winwick, sewers running through the villages, and a sewage treatment works in Old Weston.
The village of Winwick has high archaeological potential, due to the presence of a moated site, deserted medieval village and associated earthworks. The proposed pipeline begins close to some of these earthworks. Archaeological work in the village of Old Weston has yielded only limited evidence of occupation, despite its pre-Norman origins. Along the route of the pipeline, between the two villages, the only known archaeological remains to be affected will be a Roman road, north of Old Weston. The land between the villages is currently under cultivation, and probably has been since the medieval period. However, the presence of medieval and post-medieval ridge and furrow and modern cultivation soil, could be masking earlier archaeological remains.
