On the 24th and 25th of June 2021 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a trial trench evaluation at land off Clunch Pit Lane, Reach, Cambridgeshire. The work was carried out in advance of a proposed residential development for the client, Mr J. Cole.
A total of three trial trenches with a combined length of 72m were excavated during the evaluation. Trench 2 was blank and contained no archaeological features. Trench 4 contained a boundary ditch. Two more substantial boundary ditches and an associated hedge line were revealed in Trench 3. All of these features were potentially of medieval or post-medieval date. Trench 1 was not opened due to the presence of livestock.
The results of the evaluation indicate that a succession of boundaries was established along the north-eastern limit of the site from the medieval period onwards which lie on the same alignment as the modern trackway of Little Back Lane.
