On March 6th and 7th, 1995 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an earthwork survey at Hinxton Hall (TL 496/445). This work was part of site investigations for the proposed development of a sports pitch by Fuller Peiser on behalf of the Wellcome Trust.
The main area of earthworks comprised of a hollow way, and a series of rectilinear enclosures and platforms adjacent to it. This hollow way corresponds to a track on the 1799 OS draft 1" map. Documentary evidence suggests occupation in this area in the seventeenth century, although the alignment of these earthworks, which is similar to that of the Late Saxon settlement, may suggest an earlier date.
