Abstract

Following proposals by United Utilities for the construction of a waste water pipeline from the north of Linstock to Low Crosby in Cumbria (NGR NY 4268 5891 to NY 4461 5131), the Cumbria County Council Planning Archaeologist recommended that rapid archaeological desk-based research and a walkover survey of the proposed pipeline route be undertaken. Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was subsequently commissioned by United Utilities to undertake this work (OA North 2008). As a consequence of the desk-based assessment and walkover survey, Site 20 was recommended for a topographic survey in order to record the extent and size of the earthworks. The topographic survey was carried out in November 2008, the results of which are presented below. The site comprises a series of east/west aligned uneven linear features measuring approximately 5m in length. It is recommended that the site be subject to an archaeological evaluation to determine its date and function ahead of any proposed development.
