An oil spill on the south Apron gravel approach to the main (south) entrance to Wimpole Hall Cambridgeshire (TL 3355 5096) (Fig 1) required remediation work resulting in removal of contaminated surface materials. Due to the sensitive location of the oil spill an Archaeological Watching Brief was required. This watching brief was carried out on the 8th November 2016, by OA East. Removal of the contaminated gravels and underlying sub-base revealed the remains of a former stone paved surface. A full record was made of the exposed surface which was left in situ and re-instated with new clean sub-base and gravels.
