Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) in June 2003 at East View, Newton Reigny, Cumbria centred on NY48020 31550. The work was undertaken on behalf of Myles Morley, in advance of a residential development. An archaeological evaluation was required due to the archaeological potential of the area. Newton Reigny is a medieval village, with a medieval pele tower and manor house, Catterlen Hall (SM 23776). to the north of the village. A medieval moated enclosure (SMR 2924 and SM 23778) is located less than 100m to the east of the site. The development area is within the area of a former toft, belonging to a roadside croft, and the eastern edge of the development site is defined by an historic back lane. One evaluation trench, 5.7m x 2m, (orientated north/south) was excavated within the footprint of a proposed building. No archaeological remains of any significance were encountered. Given the absence of any confirmed archaeological remains within the evaluation trench it was recommended by O A North that the development may proceed without any further archaeological works
