Abstract

Following a proposal to construct a new link watermain between Waddington and Lowcocks (SD 72793 44166 - 73312 43342) by United Utilities, a programme of archaeological assessment was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North. This comprised a desk-based assessment and a walkover survey (OA North 2005). As a result of this initial phase of investigation, it was recommended that a topographic survey be undertaken for a number of earthworks (Sites 4, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 30). These sites comprised 13 areas of ridge and furrow, 11 field boundaries, three platforms and a quarry. The topographic survey, which was undertaken during the spring of 2006 revealed more extensive ridge-and-furrow cultivation than had previously been identified (Sites 09 and 11). The survey also improved the definition of one of the undated building platforms (Site 14) and the undated earthworks (Site 07) east of the easement. A watching brief was maintained during topsoil stripping activities along the route of the easement, following the completion of the topographic survey. The archaeological features observed during this final phase of work were relatively modern and of little archaeological consequence.
