In 2007, United Utilities proposed the construction of a 7km-long pipeline south-east of Penrith, Cumbria, running from the sewerage works on Whinfell Holme (NY 5470 2950) to a point approximately 1km north of the village of Hackthorpe (NY 5376 2382). Following the completion of an archaeological desk-based assessment, walkover survey and field evaluation, a controlled excavation was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North on a section of the pipeline easement situated within three modern fields immediately south and south-east of the Roman fort at Brougham (centred on NY 5396 2885). There, highly significant remains relating to the Romano-British extramural settlement associated with the fort were exposed and fully excavated prior to the pipeline construction.
