Oxford Archaeology (OA) North were commissioned by VolkerStevin Ltd to
undertake a Watching Brief during Ground Investigation (GI) works and
produce a Palaeoenvironmental Landscape Interpretation on the Kendal Flood
Risk Management Scheme (FRMS), Kendal, Cumbria (SD 51500 92500).
A programme of Ground Investigation (GI) works had been prepared to inform
the selection of a preferred route for the flood defence and inform the
detailed design process (planning ref. SL/2018/0925). The need for an
archaeological watching brief had been identified by the Environment Agency
(EA) National Environmental Assessment Service (NEAS) Senior Archaeologist
for inclusion in the GI programme. The nature and scope of archaeological
intervention throughout the GI programme had also been discussed with the
Cumbria County Council (CCC) Historic Environment Officer as archaeological
advisor to the Local Planning Authority. VolkerStevin Ltd subsequently
commissioned OA North to undertake the Watching Brief and
Palaeoenvironmental Landscape Interpretation, based on the borehole logs,
in September 2018.
