Between the 16th to 21st June 2016 Oxford Archaeology East undertook an evaluation on behalf of Anglian Water along a proposed pipeline route from Stratton Farm to Newspring Farm, Biggleswade, Bedfordshire (TL 20534 43643 to TL 21146 40987). A total of eleven trenches were excavated along the pipeline route, all measuring 30m in length. Six of these trenches contained archaeological features, an area of features were noted towards the northern end of the route with further features uncovered towards the east. The archaeology uncovered largely comprised ditches on various alignments, some of which may be Iron Age in date, although the majority are thought to date to the post-medieval period. Very little finds material was recovered from these features with only a very small number of datable finds present. The few sherds of pottery that were recovered dated to the later Iron Age.
