Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was approached by Neil Rimmington, then Project Officer for Proactive Earthwork Management of English Heritage, and commissioned to conduct an evaluation at the northern end of the green lane to the north of High Dovecote Farm, near Walton, in Cumbria (NY 5309 6436). The project was instigated by Mr Vaughan, of High Dovecote Farm, expressing his wish to English Heritage to improve his drainage on this part of his land, which would necessitate the insertion of a new drain across the line of Hadrian’s Wall and its ditch. The land here lies within the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site and forms part of the Scheduled Monument of Hadrian’s Wall between the road to Garthside and The Centurion Inn, Walton, in Wall miles 54 and 55 (SM 26077).
Following a site meeting with English Heritage and the submission of a Project Design, OA North was commissioned by English Heritage to excavate a single trench across the
projected line of the Wall and the southern edge of the ditch to assess their condition. The work was undertaken in August 2003.
