Abstract

Following proposals by United Utilities for the construction of a new water main from Knutsford Waterworks (SJ 74995 79396) to Dunham Reservoir (SJ 75284 87414), the Cheshire Planning Archaeologist recommended the completion of an archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey relating to the application area. Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was subsequently commissioned by United Utilities to undertake this work in August and September 2008. The resulting report ‘Knutsford to Dunham Pipeline, Cheshire and Greater Manchester: Archaeological Desk-Based Assessment and Walkover Survey’ was produced in December 2008. Following further consideration of the route, which involved moving large sections out of the public highway, as proposed initially, United Utilities submitted a final route in February 2009. As no detailed archaeological investigation had been undertaken of the proposed new route, OA North were asked by Jamie Lund (Archaeologist North-West Region) of The National Trust to review the historic data and conduct additional research for this final proposal as the route crosses National Trust land.
