Abstract:
The precinct of Carlisle Cathedral is a Scheduled Ancient Monument (CU 546). A watching brief was agreed to be an appropriate level of mitigation for any disturbance to archaeological deposits caused by the gas works, in accordance with the Scheduled Monument Consent (SMC) received for the proposed works. However, during these initial works, several gas leaks were identified within the cathedral grounds. As a result, a new gas connection was installed to a listed building and several test-pits were excavated within the western end of the cathedral precinct, which were not covered by the existing SMC. Following this work, an amended SMC was granted which covered further work, including the installation of a new gas connection to Abbey Gate House, further investigation test-pits and the reinstatement of all disturbed surfaces. The watching brief monitored the groundworks associated with locating an existing gas supply pipe within the western part of the cathedral precinct, which included excavation for repairing the supply pipe within the scheduled area and the reinstatement of disturbed surfaces. Only limited archaeological remains were noted during the watching brief. These included the remains of a sandstone slab surface and probable garden wall immediately northeast of the Prior's Tower, a 19th century brick-lined culvert and access chamber immediately east of No. 10 The Abbey and a buried cobbled surface to the rear of Abbey Gate House. It is also possible that a single undisturbed deposit was revealed which, based upon a single sherd of pottery, probably dates to the 13th/14th century. However, not enough of the deposit was revealed to confirm this. The finds assemblage retrieved during the watching brief included medieval pottery, a Roman amphora handle, a Romano-British bronze mount depicting a human face and a mid-4th century coin. However, most of these were retrieved from disturbed contexts.
