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.
