Archaeological investigation at railways sidings

Wardell Armstrong Archaeology was commissioned by Network Rail to undertake a programme of archaeological investigation including trial trenching and excavation on the site of the former Whitemoor Marshalling Yard in March, Cambridgeshire.

The archaeological work formed a condition attached to planning consent for the redevelopment of the site as a National Track Materials Recycling Centre. Cambridgeshire County Council required the work as the site was considered of archaeological interest in terms of remains associated with the former marshalling yard.

The archaeological investigations were completed on time and in budget and cleared the way for construction on the site to commence. WAA co-ordinated the archaeological investigations to accommodate ongoing programmes of ecological survey and site clearance works.
