On 16th November 2020 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a trial trench evaluation on Lot 1, Avenue Farm, Padgetts Lane, Fenton, Cambridgeshire (TL 31830 79595). The work was carried out as a planning condition in advance of a residential development.
A total of three trial trenches totalling 50m in length were excavated. Two of the trenches (Trenches 1 and 2) placed in the north-western and central parts of the site contained no archaeological features. Trench 3, placed in the south-eastern part of the site, contained a substantial deposit of modern demolition material and a septic tank.
All three trenches revealed a layer of demolition rubble associated with the removal of a building that was once located in the south-eastern part of the site. This rubble was evidently spread across the field, probably to level the ground which sloped slightly from west to east.
The results of the evaluation demonstrate a lack of activity prior to occupation of the site during the modern period, during which time it was used to grow sugar beet and then turned over to pasture.
