The Former Chesterton Hospital Site, Chesterton, Cambridge. An Archaeological Evaluation.

Change log


Mackay, Duncan 


Six trenches were opened on the former Chesterton Hospital site, Union Lane, Chesterton in advance of proposed development. Tour of the six trenches revealed extensive post-medieval disturbance, mainly resulting from the gravel extraction that was widespread in the Chesterton area, but Trenches one and four revealed earlier features of undetermined date. Although this suggests that at least two areas of archaeological interest survive intact, it is likely that repeated quarrying activity has truncated the natural gravel over a large proportion of the site to a depth beyond which archaeology might survive.
