Abstract

Following proposals by United Utilities for the construction of water treatment facilities and sewers at the Halton West Waste Water Treatment Works in North Yorkshire (SD 846 546), the North Yorkshire County Council Historic Environment Service recommended the completion of a rapid archaeological desk-based assessment and watching brief. Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was subsequently commissioned by United Utilities to undertake this work. Unfortunately, and due to circumstances beyond the control of OA North, the site was topsoil stripped without an archaeological presence. A site inspection of the stripped area was undertaken during which it was noted that the topsoil strip had been quite shallow, with the subsoil remaining buried over large areas of the easement. No archaeological features were observed and no recommendations are suggested for further work.
