Abstract

Following proposals by United Utilities for the construction of a pipeline between Newton Reigny and Newton Rigg, Cumbria (NY 47913188–49443056), the Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Officer (CCHERO) recommended the completion of rapid archaeological desk-based research of the application area, a walkover survey and a watching brief of the proposed works to be undertaken. Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was subsequently commissioned by United Utilities to undertake this work. Due to circumstances beyond the control of OA North the pipeline route was partially topsoil stripped prior to the walkover survey being undertaken and the commencement of the watching brief. As a result, a rapid visual inspection of the easement to the south of Newton Road was undertaken, and a watching brief was conducted during the topsoil stripping of the easement on the north side. Although the area is considered to have high archaeological potential no features of archaeological interest were revealed within the route of the pipeline, suggesting that the area around the pipeline easement was used exclusively for mixed pastoral and arable farming.
