Abstract

A basic investigation of the foundation trenches for a triple garage at Lolworth Grange, Lolworth, Cambridgeshire (TL 372 640) revealed the presence of an earlier, probably 19th century brick building and associated yard surfaces and garden. No finds were recovered that could be dated earlier than the late 18th century. The ground in this area of the grange has been made up by nearly one metre during the last hundred years; sewers and land drains have been installed implying that the original ground surface to have been very wet. No evidence for possible medieval origins of the Grange or nearby Moat (SMR 01090) were recovered from this investigation.
