A rapid archaeological assessment was commissioned on behalf of British Nuclear
Fuels plc in conjunction with an application for planning permission to drill eight test
boreholes on 100ha of land between Drigg and the sea (NGR SD 147990). The aim of
the assessment was to evaluate the impact of the proposed drilling programme on the
archaeological landscape within the defined study area. Documentary research was
carried out on 11th January 1996 and the site was visited on the 12th to investigate the
archaeological surface evidence in the vicinity of the eight proposed boreholes.
