Abstract

United Utilities have proposed the installation of a pipeline along roads, and through fields, along a route that extended from the vicinity of the northern end of Thirlmere
reservoir to the north of Bassenthwaite Lake, within the Allerdale District of Western Cumbria, which lies within the northern part of the Lake District National Park (NY
24385 26504, NGR centred). This is one of three groups of potential pipelines being considered as part of the overall scheme, with the other two pipeline portions being
assessed by Wardell Armstrong Archaeology and CFA Archaeology Ltd. The pipeline under assessment here measures 35.663km.
As a result of the potential for negative impacts upon heritage assets of archaeological interest during the works associated with the pipeline, United Utilities requested
Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake a rapid desk-based assessment of the immediate environs of the proposed pipeline. The desk-based assessment examined a corridor that was 100m wide and was undertaken between February and May 2014.
