United Utilities have proposed the installation of a pipeline along roads, and through fields, along a route that extended from the vicinity of the northern end of Thirlmere
reservoir to the north of Bassenthwaite Lake, within the Allerdale District of Western Cumbria, which lies within the northern part of the Lake District National Park NY
21311 32607 to NY 30999 19066). This is one of three groups of potential pipeline options being considered as part of the overall scheme, with the other two groups of pipeline options being assessed by Wardell Armstrong Archaeology and CFA Archaeology Ltd. The proposed pipeline route under consideration in the present report are Routes D and F that are designated in the latest version of the desk-based
assessment report (OA North 2014b). In total, the route under assessment measures 21.43km United Utilities requested Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake a deskbased
assessment of the immediate environs of the proposed pipeline (OA North 2014a). A second version of the report was issued with expanded route options (OA North 2014b). The present investigation follows on from the earlier reports and consists of a walkover survey that examined a 50m wide corridor along both Routes D and F; the walkover survey was undertaken in November 2014.
