Abstract

Between the 27th and the 29th October 2008, OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief at The Green, Green Street, Willingham, Cambridgeshire (TL 4076 7044). The monitoring was carried out during improvement works to The Green. The watching brief found a north to south tarmac road (this road had been recorded on all OS maps between 1885 and 1952). The road had been grassed over about 40 or so years ago. Natural gravel and sands were exposed below this road as well as a late 19th or 20th century ceramic pipe which had run under it. Existing 20th century services running east to west directly to the south of Church Street were uncovered. Only the top part of the present east to west road through The Green was removed in the development and machining stopped at a layer of hardcore.
