United Utilities have proposed to undertake a programme of pipework at Camerton, Cumbria (NGR 0355 0358). Following a verbal brief issued by the Assistant Archaeologist for Cumbria County Council, Oxford Archaeology North were
commissioned to undertake a programme of archaeological work comprising historic research and a permanent presence watching brief along the route.
The watching brief was undertaken in March 2007. The topsoil stripping of the pipeline easement was monitored as it passed through the three fields to the immediate south of the village of Camerton.
The historic research recorded eleven archaeological sites in the vicinity of the pipeline. Three of these have medieval origins and comprise a tower house (Site 01),
the Church of St Peter (Site 03), and lynchets (Site 05). The remainder of the sites are post-medieval and industrial period in date and largely comprise sites relating to the
coal industry, and Camerton Colliery in particular.
Other than a small spread of colliery waste (undated) no features of archaeological significance were encountered. No recommendations are made for further work.
