Abstract

Between the 30th of January and the 5th of February 2013 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological test pit evaluation at Wimpole Park, Cambridgeshire. The work was carried out on behalf of the National Trust following a scheme agreed with English Heritage. A total of 161 test pits were dug with 43 deemed to be in archaeologically sensitive areas (a Scheduled Monument), in advance of tree planting to restore the historic parkland of the formal gardens. Evidence of the seventeenth century bowling green, a levelling layer relating to a medieval trackway and surfaces of the Jacobean stable were found within the test pits.
