United Utilities have proposed to improve the wastewater treatment system along the Solway Coast in Cumbria, from Bowness-on-Solway (NY2257 6281) to Drumburgh (NY 6272 5980). The route of the improvements crosses the line of Hadrian’s Wall at a number of points and, subsequently, a programme of archaeological works was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North between February and June 2007. In late 2008, United Utilities decided to change the route of the pipeline at Drumburgh. This new route again traversed the proposed line of Hadrian’s Wall and, subsequently, Mike Collins, the English Heritage archaeologist for Hadrian’s Wall requested that a small evaluation trench should be excavated, in order to assess whether any remains of the wall would be affected by the altered route.
