Abstract

Tarmac Ltd submitted proposals for an 0.8ha extension to the north-western fringe of Tendley Hill quarry, Brigham, near Cockermouth, Cumbria (NGR 0840 2885). The proposed extension is within an area considered to have high archaeological potential and, following the results of a geophysical survey undertaken in August 2007, Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Service (CCCHES) requested that a selection of anomalies identified by the survey should be archaeologically investigated through trial trench evaluation. The evaluation was undertaken on September 27th and 28th 2007 and consisted of four trial trenches. The investigated anomalies proved to be either natural features, or possibly the remains of former field boundaries.
