Abstract

A recording brief was undertaken by Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit staff at Oxcroft Farm, West Wratting (TL 5916 5132) during building works throughout the summer of 1995. The refurbishment of a grade II listed dovecote was observed, and trail trenches excavated in advance of landscaping. The dovecote proved to be a brisk structure dating from the eighteenth century which had been converted to a dwelling during the nineteenth century. The 1995 refurbishment left the shell of the original dovecote intact but stripped away modern domestic extensions. A medieval ditch was located and sectioned.
