Abstract

A watching brief was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North on 13th July 2005 at land in the Riverside Allotments district of Wigan, Lancashire (centred on SD 5880 0650). United Utilities propose to develop the site, which lies within an area of recognised archaeological potential, for sewerage treatment. Following a request for a watching brief by the Assistant Archaeologist at Greater Manchester Archaeology Unit (GMAU), Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned to undertake the watching brief during all the topsoil stripping and ground disturbance associated with the proposed development.
In the event, through circumstance beyond the control of OA North, most of the ground-works were completed in the absence of an archaeological presence, and those that were conducted under archaeological observation yielded nothing of any archaeological significance.
