Abstract

Following a request by United Utilities Ltd, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertook a desk-based assessment and field walkover survey in August 2003, of a proposed pipeline installation route between Oxenholme and Old Town, Mansergh, Cumbria (SD 5329 9065 to SD 5970 8351). The assessment covered a 500m wide corridor of land centred on the proposed route and involved a study of primary and secondary records held within the Cumbria Sites and Monuments Record and the Cumbria County Record Office. This was intended not only to identify potential archaeological sites recorded in early documents and on maps, but also to provide an historical context for the general area. The ensuing walkover survey covered a 200m wide corridor of land and was intended to identify any surface features of potential archaeological interest. The general area is predominantly agricultural and sparsely populated, with many of the sites identified concentrated in and around the small villages and hamlets situated on the B6254 road, which runs between Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale. The majority of sites identified relate to post-medieval activity and include several quarry sites, two kilns, two pumps, two smithies, a foundry and a watermill.
