Birse Civils commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake an archaeological watching brief during the groundworks on the north side of the river Derwent associated with the replacement of Northside Bridge, Workington, Cumbria (NGR NX 9995 2940). The watching brief was a condition of the planning permission requested by Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Service (CCCHES). This was based on information from an assessment of the cultural heritage resource surrounding the bridge site as part of an Environmental Impact Assessment undertaken by OA North, in 2010, on behalf of Capita Symonds and Cumbria County Council. The assessment identified the potential for sub-surface remains, including the remains of human burials, in association with the find spot of an early medieval Viking sword.
