1.1 A planning application (2/2013/0198) was made by Roy Wilson for the construction of a new-build garage attached to Burtonwood, Papcastle, Cockermouth (NGR NY 11263 31235; Fig 1).
1.2 As the site lies to the south-east of Papcastle Roman fort, within land within the former Roman settlement associated with it (Appendix 1), Cumbria County Council’s Historic Environment Service (CCCHES) attached a condition to the planning application, stipulating that an archaeological watching brief should be maintained during the ground works for the development. These requirements were conveyed to Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) and a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) was provided, see Appendix 1. OA North were subsequently commissioned to undertake the watching brief.
