An archaeological watching brief was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) on behalf of United Utilities during the trial trenching for a scheme of sewer-refurbishment in Tait Street, Botchergate, Carlisle (NY 4050 5550) (Fig 1). Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Service (CCCHES) recommended that an archaeological watching brief was carried out as the scheme affected an area with great potential for Roman remains.
The watching brief was undertaken during February, during the excavation of a trial trench on the east side of Tait Street, at its junction with Cecil Street. Due to the extensive disturbance from previous utility works and the relatively shallow depth of the trench, no features of archaeological significance were encountered. Subsequently, following consultation with both the client and the planning Archaeologist, it was agreed that any further trenching on Tait Street would not require the presence of an archaeologist.
