United Utilities proposed the construction of a flow transfer structure, which necessitated the construction of a pipeline from Colby Lane, Appleby (NY 368008 519797) to the junction at Colby House and Midtown Farm, Colby, Cumbria (NY 366535 520666). An additional short branch extended from the eastern side of Colby Bridge (NY 366844 520253) to terminate in a field to the east of Colby Beck (NY 366989 520909).
Following the results of rapid archaeological desk-based research (OA North 2010) of the proposed development area, the Planning Archaeologist at Cumbria County Council requested that an archaeological watching brief be undertaken during the pipeline works in areas of previously undisturbed ground. The subsequent watching brief took place to the west of Colby Bridge, and was completed in two phases in December 2010 and May 2011. No archaeological remains were observed during either phase of the works.
No recommendations are offered for further archaeological investigation in this area of the pipeline easement.
