Abstract

On the 24th and 25th August 2006, Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit (CCC AFU) undertook an archaeological evaluation by trial trench on land to the rear of Nos 33 to 35 New Street, St Neots (TL 1830 6045), in advance of the proposed construction of four maisonettes with parking. A large medieval ditch was encountered which may be part of a precinct boundary belonging to St Neots Benedictine Priory (established 972-5, dissolved 1539), which lies c. 100m to the south-west of the New Street development area.
