An archaeological watching brief was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) on behalf of McAlpine Utilities during excavation of a pipe trench in November 2004 at Cartmel, Cumbria (SD 3805 7855). The work was undertaken
following advice from Cumbria County Council Archaeological Service (CCCAS) that the field through which the pipe trench passes, which is within 250m of the Augustinian Priory, contains earthworks of potential archaeological interest.
Therefore, it was necessary that an archaeological watching brief was carried out in order to ascertain the presence or absence of any remains relating to the priory or other phases of activity in the area.
Pottery dating to between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries was recovered from the topsoil and, a deposit of gravel and cinders thought to relate to buildings marked
on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of 1851 was encountered. Otherwise, no features of archaeological significance were encountered.
