Between 19th and 23rd April 2012, OA North undertook a watching brief during alterations to the electricity network at Camp Farm, Papcastle by Electricity North West. The works comprised the repositioning of the stay wire attached to an existing pole, the installation of a new H pole, and the excavation of a trench to lay a cable from the new pole to Papcastle Road, through the garden of Camp Farm House and the field immediately to the north.
At their closest point the alterations were located c 50m south-west of the scheduled monument of Derventio Roman fort (SM 22499), but no features or finds dating to the Roman period were identified during the watching brief. Indeed, beyond sewers and a land drain, the only feature observed was a dump of roughly-shaped stone which appears to represent the discarded remains of a relatively recently dismantled section of field boundary.
