Abstract

United Utilities have proposed the installation of a pipeline along roads, and through fields, along a route that extended from the vicinity of the northern end of Thirlmere reservoir to the north of Bassenthwaite Lake, within the Allerdale District of Western Cumbria,which lies within the northern part of the Lake District National Park (NY24385 26504, NGR centred). This is one of three groups of potential pipeline options being considered as part of the overall scheme, with the other two groups of pipeline options being assessed by Wardell Armstrong Archaeology and CFA Archaeology Ltd. The pipeline under assessment here measures 67.5km. As a result of the potential for negative impacts upon heritage assets of archaeological interest during the works associated with the pipeline, United Utilities requested Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake a rapid desk-based assessment of the immediate environs of the proposed pipeline. The desk-based assessment examined a corridor that was 100m wide and was undertaken between February and May, and during July and August, 2014.
