Abstract

Following a proposal by United Utilities for a development between Bowness-on- Solway (NY 22568 62811) and Drumburgh (NY 26720 59797), Cumbria, a programme of archaeological investigation including a desk-based assessment, watching brief and walkover survey was requested by Cumbria County Archaeological Service in consultation with English Heritage. The development was to consist of improvements to wastewater treatment facilities, including the construction of new treatment works and pipeline. This work is to take place in an area of very high archaeological potential with numerous Scheduled Ancient Monuments associated with and including Hadrian’s Wall, a World Heritage Site, which the pipeline route crosses five times. The route also runs in close proximity, and crosses, the Carlisle Navigation Canal (later Carlisle Railway), and there are remains relating to both the prehistoric and medieval periods from the general area. This report presents the results of the desk-based assessment, watching brief and walkover survey. Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) carried out the assessment in November of 2003 and the watching brief in December 2003.
