The Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit conducted an archaeological evaluation by trenching in July 2003 at Willow Brook Farm Yard, Castle End, Maxey (TF 1291 0846). The work was carried out in advance of the redevelopment of the farmyard for housing.
Five trenches were excavated with the vast majority of the archaeological deposits found in the eastern end of trench 1, close to the street front. It could be characterised as medieval street front occupation of a domestic character, probably beginning in the tenth or eleventh century, carrying on perhaps into the sixteenth century. Surfaces, walls, ditches, post holes and a hearth were encountered.
