Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was conducted on a section of gas pipeline. This archaeological monitoring also included sections of controlled topsoil removal under direct archaeological supervision on sites of significant potential identified from desk based research. Work on the gas pipeline formed the basis of two separate phases of construction. Phase 1 identified three sites which were excavated and recorded. Site 1 uncovered the badly disturbed remains of Westerton Cottages, the known location of a group of shale miner's cottages of late 19th century origin. Excavation of Site 2 revealed a cluster of possible pits of unknown date. Site 3 was the location of a large pit containing Beaker pottery and some fragments of cremated bone. The feature had been substantially disturbed by the incorporation of a field drain. A series of isolated features were also uncovered and recorded during the watching brief, which were largely attributed to farming practice and land management in the post-medieval period. Phase II identified a pair of substantial parallel ditches situated in Newliston Historic Garden and Designed Landscape which were interpreted as a landscape feature such as an avenue or boundary of probable 18th C. origin. Other features included isolated pits which were attributed to late post-medieval agricultural activity, or small scale gravel extraction; the foundation remains of a drystone wall running parallel to the existing highway north of Section 10 and the remains of a cobble trackway badly damaged by ploughing running parallel to the exiting access to Newliston from the east.
