United Utilities proposed the construction of a c 13km long transfer flow pipeline from Crosby Ravensworth through Maulds Meaburn and on to the south-west of Colby in Cumbria (NY 362134 513956 to NY 366557 520400). Following the results of previous desk-based research (OA North 2009), the Planning Archaeologist at Cumbria County Council (CCC), requested that a watching brief be undertaken during topsoil stripping activities in areas of previously undisturbed ground. The fieldwork was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North), and completed between January and May 2011.
Two stone-line field drains and a lynchet were observed during the topsoil stripping activities. These features are not closely datable.
No recommendations are offered for further work in the sections of the easement subject to the watching brief.
