Abstract

Following a proposal by United Utilities to construct a waste water pumping station, pipeline and access road at Three Bridges, Swarthmoor, Cumbria Cumbria County Council Archaeology Service (CCCAS) issued a written statement recommending a programme of archaeological works prior to the proposed development. The development lay within an area of archaeological significance, which is particularly rich in prehistoric remains and, as such, CCCAS recommended that a watching brief be maintained during the course of the groundworks. Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned to carry out this work in September 2007.
The watching brief was conducted during the topsoil stripping of the easement prior to development. Although there is evidence of human activity in the surrounding area
from prehistoric to post-medieval times, no features of archaeological interest were revealed during the groundworks.
