Abstract

Following a programme of historical research and a walkover survey (OA North 2008), The National Trust Archaeologist (North-West Region) specified that an archaeological watching brief be undertaken during the excavation of a series of test pits. The pits were aligned along the route of the proposed United Utilities Water Main, within Tatton Park, Cheshire East (SJ 7455 8158), and were part of the water main renewal works. Work commenced on the pipeline in February 2010 and, in total, 15 test pits were excavated along the route, in order to allow a drilling rig to tunnel beneath the ground surface to lay the water pipe with a minimum of disturbance to the park land. The test pits were generally spaced 100m apart and were located in positions that would potentially impact on historic fields and boundaries. Only one of the pits (Pit 5) contained archaeological features of interest, being buried soil horizons. It is intended that the following document is intended as a supplement to the earlier reports. No recommendations are made for further work
