Abstract

United Utilities proposed the construction of a pipeline in the Eaton and Cholmondeston area of Cheshire, from Eaton Borehole to Nanney’s Bridge (NGR SJ 568634 to 660564). Following the results of a desk-based assessment specified by the Cheshire Planning Archaeologist, and undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North 2007), it was recommended that a walkover survey, targeted topographic survey and archaeological evaluation trenching should be undertaken. The walkover survey was carried out in December 2007, and the subsequent topographic survey and evaluation trenching were undertaken during February and March 2008. The walkover survey identified nine additional archaeological sites that might possibly be affected by the pipeline works. These include five field boundaries (Sites 39, 41, 42, 44 and 46), a trackway (Site 40), ridge and furrow earthworks (Site 43), a possible bank (Site 45), and three linear mounds (Site 47). Although the field boundaries, trackway and ridge and furrow are not closely dated they are most likely of post medieval date, whereas the bank and linear mounds are of unknown function and date.
