Abstract

Four trenches were opened around the Meadowcroft building, off Church Street, Chesterton, in advance of proposed development. All four trenches revealed extensive post-medieval disturbance, mostly resulting from gravel extraction that was widespread in the Chesterton area. This disturbance, combined with that associated with the Meadowcroft building itself is likely to have truncated the natural gravel over a large proportion of the site to a depth beyond which archaeology might be encountered. No features of archaeological interest were found.
