In September 1995 a watching brief was carried out on behalf of the Cambridge Water Company by an archaeologist from the Archaeological field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council who were laying a new water main between Babraham and Sawston (TL 499-514). A section of the pipeline route was chosen for intensive machining due its proximity (c.100m) previously recovered building material and associated artefacts dated to the Roman period (Figure 1). The removal of topsoil down to the top of the subsoil, along the pipeline easement revealed no Roman activity in the form of features or artefacts along the section of the pipelines route which was closely monitored during topsoil stripping (Figure 1).
