Cumbria County Council’s Historic Environment Service (CCCHES)was consulted by Carlisle City Council regarding a planning application for the relocation of Knockupworth Farm, near Burgh by Sands. The area affected by the planning application (no. 1/11/0610) covers approximately 1ha and centres on NGR NY 3680 5690.

The scheme affects an area of high archaeological potential close to Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site and where important archaeological remains are known to survive. Because of the high archaeological potential of the site, CCCHES advised that the applicant should provide information
on the significance of any archaeological remains surviving on the site and how that significance would be impacted upon by the proposed development. In order to provide this information programmes of archaeological work, including a rapid desk-based (DBA) assessment and a walkover survey, followed by evaluation trenching, were requested, as described within a Design Brief, issued by CCCHES (23-09-11). Patrick Reynolds, the land agent acting on behalf of Mr Young of Knockupworth Farm, subsequently commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake this work and a Project Specification was prepared.
