The Former Grange Farm, Wilberforce Road, Cambridge. An Archaeological Desktop Assessment.



Change log


Appleby, Grahame 


This archaeological desk based assessment was commissioned by Savills on behalf of St John’s College to assess the potential impact of a proposed development area (PDA) of c. 1ha at Wilberforce Road, Cambridge, on the site of the former Grange Farm, (TL 4346 5841). Located between suburban properties, University teaching facilities, the University and college sports grounds and agricultural land (to the west), the PDA is irregular in shape. No archaeological features or artefacts have been found within the PDA, although archaeological features from the wider landscape include settlement related activity dating from the Bronze Age to the Medieval period are known. Significantly, a Roman road, oriented northeastsouthwest, runs along the south-eastern boundary (adjacent to No. 13 Herschel Road – Clare Hall accommodation), and bisects the proposed development area towards the southern end of the PDA.
