Oxford Archaeology North were commissioned by National Wind Power Ltd to undertake
a desk based assessment to inform a planning application for a small wind power scheme
at High Pow Farm, Wigton, Cumbria (NGR NY 245 425). The work involved a desk-based
study in conjunction with a walk-over survey. The work was undertaken in the week of the
24th March 2003.
The desk-based study demonstrated that the area had been unimproved common land until
enclosure in the late eighteenth century and that there was a limited number of postmedieval
agricultural monuments within the environs of the proposed wind farm site. No
remains of prehistoric or Roman date have been found in the development area, although
the proximity of the site to the Roman road and to the Old Carlisle Roman fort means that
there is some potential for the existence of Roman remains.
