Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by United Utilities to carry out an archaeological watching brief during groundworks associated with the construction of a new wastewater treatment works and water transfer pipeline at Swarthmoor, Ulverston, Cumbria (SD 2788 7787).
The site of the proposed treatment works lies between the A590 Barrow road and Pennington Lane to the west of Ulverston, Cumbria. The proposed pipeline runs north
and north-east from the treatment works site immediately adjacent to the A590, terminating to the west of Stone Cross School.
A programme of desk-based assessment and walkover survey (OA North 2004; OA North 2009 respectively) was initially undertaken across the whole of the pipeline corridor to identify areas of archaeological potential within the proposed development area.
Following the results of this earlier programme of archaeological works, the Specialist Advisor (Archaeology) at Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Services
(CCCHES) recommended that a watching brief be undertaken during ground disturbance associated with the proposed development, including topsoil stripping activities. This was duly undertaken in February and August 2009.
No archaeological features of any significance were observed during the watching brief, and no further work is recommended.
