On the 20th February 2012 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an evaluation on land to the north of 7 Manor Court Road, Witchford, Ely, Cambridgeshire. The site is located within the historic core of Witchford village, close to the 13th century church of St. Andrew. Three trenches, each measuring 10m in length, were machine excavated within an area measuring approximately 35m x 25m. The only significant archaeological feature encountered was a post-medieval ditch in Trench 3, orientated north-north-east to south-south-west. The ditch represents a small boundary which can be seen on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map, where it encloses a small building, adjacent to a track which is now Manor Court Road.
