The Countryside Agency commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to design and install seven information panels along the length of the Hadrian’s Wall National Trail Path, from Solway to Wallsend. One of the panels is to be situated alongside the Errington Arms Inn, Stagshaw, Corbridge, Northumberland (NGR NY 9874 6863). The site lies within the scheduled area of National Monument No 26047, between the course of the Vallum and Hadrian’s Wall. Planning consent was provided by Tynedale Council (ref: 20050160), with a condition for a permanent archaeological presence required during any groundworks. Due to the scheduled status, the work also required Scheduled Monument Consent which was granted by the DCMS and monitored by English Heritage. Unlike the other six installation sites where the panel would be mounted on a lectern, English Heritage required the panel to be mounted on a coarse stone plinth, with limestone mortar, considered to be more sympathetic to its rural location. The watching brief was carried out during the construction and associated groundworks of the plinth on 21st August 2006. A single shallow trench was manually excavated entirely through topsoil and no archaeological deposits were encountered nor disturbed during the work. No further recommendations were made for archaeological intervention.
