Abstract

United Utilities propose the construction of a pipeline from Little Dunnow Wood to Proctor’s Farm, near Slaidburn, Lancashire (SD 69642 53756 to SD 70335 51365).
The total length of the proposed pipeline is approximately 5km. Following recommendations made by the Planning Archaeologist at Lancashire County Council Historic Environment Service, United Utilities commissioned Oxford
Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake historic research and a walkover survey for the proposed development area. This was duly undertaken in February 2010.
As a result of the historic research and, in particular, the results of the walkover survey, which combined identified 56 sites of archaeological interest, a programme
of topographic survey was carried out on an extensive number of earthwork remains in and around the village. In addition, the site of the proposed pumping kiosk within
Slaidburn village, was subject to a strip and record investigation. These elements, together with a limited watching brief maintained adjacent to the site of the kiosk,
were undertaken during August 2010.
A watching brief remains to be maintained during trench open-cut activities. This will be subject to a separate report.
