Following a proposal to create a new Waste Water Treatment Works (WwTW) and water pipeline between Lowgill sinks and the River Hindburn, Lowgill, Lancashire (SD 65270 64850 to SD 64810 65050) a programme of archaeological work was undertaken on behalf of United Utilities. The work comprised a watching brief during the topsoil strip in advance of the excavation of the pipe trench and the laying of the proposed pipeline. The work was undertaken in July, August and September 2006 and followed a brief from Lancashire County Council Archaeological Services (LCCAS). The watching brief was carried out in order to ascertain the presence or absence of any archaeological remains, particularly those relating to the Ribchester to Tebay Roman road thought to run below the present Lowgill Lane.
In total, five fields were inspected and finds dating to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were recovered from unstratified deposits. However, no features or horizons of archaeological significance were encountered during the works and no remnant of the Roman road was observed.
