As a result of forecasted increases in natural gas imports entering the UK via Easington on the north-east coast of England, National Grid has concluded that reinforcement of its National Transmission System will be required. National Grid has been granted permission by the DTI to construct a new 1220mm (48”) diameter pipeline, for the transportation of natural gas between existing Above Ground Installations (AGIs) at Asselby in the East Riding of Yorkshire (469959 427294; SE 699 272) and near Pannal in North Yorkshire (425260 450602; SE 252 506). The pipeline will be approximately 62km in length.
The pipeline route is predominantly aligned south-east to north-west, passing near the towns and villages of Drax, Camblesforth, Carlton, Burn, Gateforth, Hambleton, Little Fenton, Sherburn in Elmet, Barkston Ash, Saxton, Aberford, Wothersome, Collingham, East Keswick, Kirby Overblow, North Rigton and Briscoerrig.
A programme of archaeological work has been commissioned by National Grid (NG) and Entrepose Industrial Services Ltd (EIS) - their principle contractor for the phase 1 engineering works - in order to avoid or mitigate any adverse effect that pipeline construction may have on the cultural heritage along the scheme. This report presents
the results of evaluation trenching undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) as part of this programme.
