Abstract

Following a request by McAlpine Utility Services, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertook an archaeological watching brief, in September 2004, of a proposed pipeline installation route between Tirril and Yanwath, Cumbria (NY 512 277 to NY 504 268). This report sets of the results of the watching brief on three test pits along the pipeline route. The test pits were all excavated on the northern grass verge of the B5320, between the railway bridge on the western side of Yanwath and the turning to Sockbridge north-east of Tirril. The test pits were excavated in order to locate an existing water-main, and were excavated down to the natural till. No deposits of any archaeological significance were present. It was not recommended that any further archaeological excavation be conducted at the site, and it was stipulated by CCCAS that an archaeological watching brief on the development would no longer be required.
