Abstract

United Utilities Ltd propose the construction of a new transfer pipeline from Stockswell Pumping Station to Netherley Wastewater Treatment Works, Merseyside. This will require the installation of a new pipeline approximately 5km in length from SJ 447 883 to SJ 482 876 to transfer the flow to another pumping station. Following the submission of a project design, Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned to undertake a desk-based assessment. The desk-based assessment was undertaken in November 2004 and involved consultation of the Merseyside Sites and Monuments Record (MSMR) in Liverpool, the Merseyside Record Office (MRO) in Liverpool, and the Lancashire Record Office (LRO) in Preston. In total, 121 sites were identified within the study area, comprising approximately 1km radius of the proposed pipeline. The majority (111) were identified from the SMR, whilst the remainder were detected from cartographic sources. A range of periods was demonstrated with two Mesolithic sites (Sites 23 and 30), one Bronze Age site (Site 23), two Romano-British sites (Sites 23 and 17), 33 medieval sites (Sites 18, 19, 21, 36, 37, 42–48, 22, 23, 26, 27, 29, 31, 32, 38, 39, 49, 52, 73, 92, 97, 101, 104, 105, 107, 109, 110, 113), 81 post-medieval sites (Sites 01–16, 20, 25, 28, 40, 41, 50, 51, 53–72, 74–80, 82–91, 93–96, 98–100, 102, 103, 106, 108, 111, 112, 114–121), and four unknown sites (Sites 33–35, 81). A range of types of sites was illustrated comprising findspots (Sites 17, 30, 110), pottery scatters (Sites 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, 92, 105), a settlement site (Site 23), agricultural buildings (Sites 05, 07, 08, 10, 14, 20, 21, 42, 46, 48–50, 52, 53, 55, 69, 70, 74, 78, 79, 91, 97, 99, 103, 109, 118), residential buildings (Sites 01, 04, 06, 09, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, 51, 57, 59–66, 77, 80, 86–89, 94, 96, 102, 106, 119), wells (Sites 02, 11, 75, 90, 93, 100), bridges (Sites 25, 56, 83, 98, 108, 112), roadways (Sites 26, 31, 113), route markers (Sites 76, 82, 111), woodland (Sites 67, 68), stocks (Site 71), a smithy (Site 84), a workshop (Site 85), fields (Sites 114–117, 120), crop-marks (Sites 32, 33–35) and an earthwork (Site 81). Two Grade II listed buildings were recorded in the study area at Tarbock Hall (Site 18) and Rose Cottage (Site 80). The study area was assessed for its archaeological significance by using the criteria laid down in Annex 4 of Planning Policy Guidance 16 (PPG 16, DoE 1990).
