Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) has been requested by United Utilities to examine
the archaeological implications of the construction of two sections of a proposed pipeline
route in central Cumbria. One section extends through the areas around Askham, Helton,
Bampton and Shap (NY 4664 2171 - 5615 1256), of which the Askham Fell part has
already been examined in an earlier study. The other section runs through Raisbeck, Asby,
Crosby Garrett and Warcop (NY 6437 0758 - 7317 1948) and touches the parishes of
Soulby and Ormside. Both areas contain extensive landscapes containing a rich range of
archaeological monuments extending from the Neolithic period through to the present.
Some of the sites are Scheduled Monuments, deemed to be of national importance, and as
such are protected from any disturbance. The appraisal was undertaken in November 2002.
The requirement of the study was for a rapid appraisal of the route rather than an in-depth
assessment; consequently the sources investigated were restricted to the Sites and
Monuments Record (SMR) and the OS First Edition maps, and only summary descriptions
of the archaeological resource were compiled. Where possible, quantitative methods have
been utilised in order to produce a more informative picture of the resource and the impact
of the proposals upon it, and thereby provide a basis for recommendations to protect the
resource, or provide appropriate mitigative measures.
