Abstract:
This archaeological assessment of a proposed solar farm at Summercourt, St Enoder, Cornwall, for Wardell Armstrong International was undertaken by the Projects team of Historic Environment, Cornwall Council. The study was designed to gain a better understanding of the impacts which would result from the solar farm, both within the limits of this site, and in the surrounding historic landscape. It includes the results of a desk-based study, field visit and geophysical survey. The proposed area does not include any Scheduled Monuments or Listed Buildings. In the potential viewshed up to 5km from the site two Scheduled Monuments have possible inter-visibility with the site. The site is also possibly visible from seven of the Listed Buildings within the viewshed. The proposed site includes or is bordered by fifteen archaeological sites of particular significance. Those within the proposed area include the site of an Iron Age or Romano-British round (site 2) where a stone axe was found (site 3) and is also possibly the site of a medieval Plain An Gwarry (site 4), two other possible rounds (sites 1 and 5) (although neither were identified by the geophysical survey), an area of medieval ridge and furrow (site 6) and a field system (site 3). Those sites bordering the area include another Iron Age or Romano-British round to the south-west (site 8), a prehistoric field system probably associated with site 8 (site 9), the site of a possible Roman road along the A30 (site 10), another possible round (site 11), the site of a small Bronze Age settlement (site 12) an area of medieval ridge and furrow (site 13), early medieval tin streamworks (site 14) and the site of a possible post-medieval decoy pond (site 15). The geophysical survey identified two earlier field systems in the central and eastern fields, one of probable prehistoric origin.
