Abstract

RSK Environment Ltd, on behalf of their client Dong Walney (UK) Ltd, commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake an archaeological watching brief during the installation of an onshore cable from the Walney Offshore Windfarm, from Half Moon Bay to the electricity substation on Middleton Road, Heysham, Lancashire (NGR SD 34010 45913 to SD 34173 46014). The watching brief was requested as a condition of the planning permission agreed as a result of consultation between RSK Environment Ltd and Lancashire Council Archaeological Service (LCAS), and was based on an environmental assessment undertaken by Wessex Archaeology Ltd. This previous assessment had identified the potential for prehistoric remains or deposits across the development area, particularly around the area of Heysham Moss, which has high potential for palaeoenvironmental remains. Following the results of the environmental assessment, OA North carried out a programme of fieldwalking and palaeoenvironmental sampling across the area. These produced no results of archaeological or palaeoenvironmental interest.
