Abstract:
AC Ltd was commissioned by Chloe Bines of Migrid to undertake an archaeological assessment of the site of a proposed wind turbine near Mithian (NGR SW 74040 48824). This was in accordance with a brief provided by Daniel Ratcliffe (2012), Historic Environment Planning Advice Officer, to facilitate appropriate planning decisions. The proposed wind turbine site is in an adjacent field to a probable Bronze Age barrow. The site also sits within a rich prehistoric and historic landscape that includes other barrows some of which are Scheduled Monuments, evidence of mining activity and two Listed Buildings. The proposed development is likely to have minimal impact on the identified sites, the most pertinent being the visual impact of the turbine on Mithian Downs Barrow (Site 6) during its use phase. A watching brief of subsurface works would appropriately mitigate for any subsurface impact. Given the implementation of the recommendations set out in this report it may be considered that the substantial positive impact of green energy production and the dissemination of the archaeological results appropriately offset the minor negative impacts identified.
