Between the 30th of January and the 1st of February 2006, the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit conducted an archaeological evaluation on the site of The Grand cinema at the Great Whyte, Ramsey, in advance of the site’s redevelopment for housing and a library.
Evidence of late medieval or early post-medieval occupation was found fronting onto the Great Whyte (Trench 1) in the form of masonry. Post-medieval dumping of material in Trench 2 was probably connected with land reclamation, while in Trench 3 evidence suggests that that area (Newtown Green) remained wet until the modern period.
It is likely that any archaeological evidence relating to medieval occupation will be confined to the western portion of the site, fronting onto the Great Whyte.
