Oxford Archaeology North (OA North), undertook a desk-based assessment and walkover survey on behalf of United Utilities Ltd during March 2005. The assessment covered a 1km corridor of land around the proposed pipeline route from Kirkby Stephen to Midland Cottages Waste Water Treatment Works, Cumbria (NY 7716 0760 to NY 7621 0678).
The desk-based assessment comprised a search of both published and unpublished records held by the Cumbria County Historic Environment Record (HER) in Kendal, the Cumbria County Record Office, also in Kendal, and the archives and library held at OA North. In total, 27 sites were identified from the HER, including two Scheduled Monuments (Sites 10 and 23) at Kirkby Stephen. Another 21 sites were identified through the examination of early maps, aerial photographs and previous archaeological assessments carried out in the area. In total, 8 sites identified by the desk-based assessment are likely to be affected by the proposed development: a Roman road (Site 01), a coal depot (Site 14), a quarry (Site 15), a building (Site 19), two parks (Sites 20 and 30), and two enclosures (Sites 33 and 34).
The walkover survey identified a further 10 sites, making a total of 58 sites identified by the two surveys. This added a further four sites that are likely to be affected by the development: an enclosure (Site 53), a stone wall (Site 51), a mound (Site 54) and a stone outcrop (Site 58).
