On the 3rd and 4th of April and the 19th June 2013, OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief at Cranwell Booster Station, Byard's Leap, Sleaford, Lincolnshire (SK 9904 4949). The monitoring was carried out during the construction works for a new chlorination station on an existing water main running along Ermine Street Roman Road. The monitoring revealed deposits shown to be the limestone rubble core and gravel metalled surface of the Roman road. The surviving camber is proved to be 0.35m thick and at least 14m wide at this point. These deposits are consistent with the descriptions of Ermine street from previous archaeological monitoring conducted to the north of the site. No roadside ditch was encountered to the east of the Roman road.
