United Utilities proposed to construct a 16.5km pipeline from Oswestry to Penley, Shropshire. Following recommendations made by Shropshire County Council Historic
Environment Countryside Advisor, United Utilities commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake an archaeological rapid desk-based assessment in order to identify the presence of sites of archaeological interest in the vicinity of the pipeline route and to assess the potential impact of the pipeline on such sites. The rapid desk-based research was undertaken in May 2010. In order to establish the visible character and extent of the sites identified during the desk-based research, and to identify any additional sites within the study area that had not been previously recognised, a walkover survey was also undertaken.
In total, 127 sites were identified during the desk-based research and walkover survey. Of these, 46 were identified following consultation of the Shropshire County Historic
Environment Record (SCHER), 26 sites were identified during the rapid desk-based assessment, and 55 sites were identified during the walkover survey.
