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), Cheshire Historic Environment Record 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 total, 139 sites of archaeological interest were identified within the study area during the desk-based assessment, and all had been previously recorded in either the Cheshire or Greater Manchester HER. One site, (Site 129), a motte and bailey fortification, was designated a Scheduled Monument, whilst forty-two listed buildings were also identified within the study area, though these were not included within the gazetteer.
