Oxford Archaeology (OA) North was commissioned by Royal HaskoningDHV(RHDHV), acting on behalf of their client Dong Energy, to conduct a programme ofarchaeological evaluation by trial trenching, followed by a further phase of strip, map and record (commissioned directly by Dong Energy). The works took place at the proposed site of an electricity substation near Heysham, Lancashire, forming part of
the wider Walney Extension Offshore Windfarm in Morecambe Bay. The initial phase of trenching was conducted in order subsequent phase of archaeological mitigation that may be required. Based upon the speculative results of the initial archaeological works, a subsequent phase involving a
process of strip, map and record was undertaken in order to examine two specific areas of archaeological potential. This was required by Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS), in response to the potential impact eventual works may have upon any archaeological remains and the archaeological potential of the site. The initial works comprised the excavation of 45 trial trenches, mostly across and around the location of a suspected palaeochannel, and the recovery of borehole samples from two locations. The subsequent strip, map and record phase comprised the stripping of two large areas, intended to further expose several features and their wider surround, in order to clarify and expand upon the interpretative results of the initial works.
