Abstract

In 2002, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North 2003) was commissioned by United Utilities to undertake a walk-over survey and produce an archaeological assessment along the route of the proposed pipeline in central Cumbria. This assessment indicated that each of two sections of pipeline, one between Bankwood and Raisbeck across the Eden Valley (NY 6437 0758 - 7317 1948) and the other between Pooley Bridge and Shap (NY 4781 2492 - 5615 1256), ran across areas of high archaeological potential, which contained monuments dating from the Neolithic period to the present, including a number of Scheduled Monuments. Following on from the assessment and walk-over survey, a programme of archaeological survey was undertaken of selected monuments identified during the assessment. OA North then conducted an evaluation of the section of the proposed pipeline route running from Pooley Bridge to Shap, between 19th April and 17th May 2004.
