Abstract

During August 2012 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a 14 trench evaluation of the land behind the High Street, Newmarket (TL 637 632)). The majority of the trenches revealed a chalk bedrock cut by periglacial features. Features in trenches 10, 11 and 12 are likely to be associated with Early to Middle Bronze Age and Early Iron Age occupation within the north-east corner of the development area. Trench 3 had evidence for early post-medieval backyard features as well as 18th century features at the south-west corner of the development around the area of the old swimming pool. Trench 1 uncovered 18th century remains probably associated with the Queensbury Yard stables and the Queensbury yard lodge. Potentially representing some of the earliest stable buildings within Newmarket.
