Abstract

On 16th August 2012, Oxford Archaeology East conducted a historical building survey on a range of out buildings at the rear of 112 High Street, March, in advance of alterations scheduled to be made to convert the site into residential dwellings. Although 112 High Street is Grade II listed, there is no mention of the outbuildings in the listed building description. This work was carried out in response to a brief issued by Cambridgeshire County Council's Historic Environment Team. The brief required that a survey (equivalent to an English Heritage Level 2 Survey) was carried out on the existing buildings prior to major alterations to the original fabric. Three main phases of development were noted; the construction of a small service wing with first floor accommodation which may be contemporary with the main house and date to the late 18th century, the addition of a second outbuilding to the range in the early-mid 19th century with three separate rooms and the final addition is the late 20th century garage and outside w/c. Cartographic evidence found during background research has shown that the existing early outbuildings have been unaltered since the late 19th century and the construction of the garage replaced a number of buildings which continued along this range which were in existence until at least 1971.
