An archaeological watching brief was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) on behalf of United Utilities during topsoil stripping activities, relating to the
laying of a pipeline between Rainow Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) to Bollington Transfer Pipeline, Cheshire (SJ 9446 7663 to SJ 9409 7777). The work was undertaken in April 2006, and following advice from Cheshire County Council
(CCC). The watching brief was carried out in order to ascertain the presence or absence of any remains within the easement of the pipeline the area.
Pottery dating to the late eighteenth to twentieth centuries was recovered from the topsoil. A small post-medieval ditch (Field 2) and complex of stone built land drains (Field 5) were located and recorded. Otherwise, no features of archaeological significance were encountered.
