An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land at Grange Farm, Palgrave in advance of the construction of an agricultural building. A single ditch, relating to a boundary shown on the First Edition Ordnance Survey of 1886, was identified and, although infilled during the 19th and 20th centuries, may have had post-medieval or earlier origins as it appears to have formed part of a wider water management system partially enclosing an area to the south of the farmhouse. As the proposed development will have only a minimal impact on archaeological deposits no further work is thought necessary.
