An archaeological watching brief was carried out by Lancaster University
Archaeological Unit (LUAU) at Waitby, Cumbria during the laying of a North
West Water Ltd pipe trench (NY 078747 to 071762); the work was undertaken
between 18/3/96 and 30/3/96.
Following discussions with the English Heritage Inspector of Ancient
Monuments, the line of the trench was deviated around two Romano-British
settlements (designated as Scheduled Ancient Monuments), but elsewhere crossed
areas of a medieval early upland cultivation containing features such as lynchets,
banks, areas of ridge furrow, and trackways. A Watching Brief was required by
the Cumbria County Archaeologist to identify any sub-surface features affected
by the pipe and to monitor the impact of the pipe on the earthwork remains.
