Oxford Archaeology (OA) North was commissioned by Network Plus to undertake an archaeological watching brief during excavation works for the repair of a water pipe in front of the Raven Inn, Glazebury, Warrington. The work was undertaken as a requirement of the Development Management
Archaeologist for Cheshire Archaeological Planning Advisory Services (APAS), who issued a brief that an archaeological watching brief would be necessary during any excavation works associated with pipe repairs. OA North were commissioned by Network Plus to produce a written scheme of investigation and undertake the required fieldwork, which was undertaken on 20th October 2021.
The trench was hand-dug by an operative from Network Plus to the damaged service. The water leak had saturated the surrounding soils which made visibility difficult, however, the trench was excavated entirely within the backfill of the original service trench. Once the damaged service was
encountered excavations ceased; as such, natural geology was not encountered and there were no features or finds within the trench.
