Abstract:
A programme of archaeological field reconnaissance and mitigation was undertaken at Arecleoch Wind Farm, near Barrhill, South Ayrshire. A site visit highlighted 16 sites previously indentified in the ES that were within 50m of construction; these were demarcated. A rapid desk-based assessment of the Wheeb Bridge to Arecleoch access track identified a further 14 cultural heritage sites: 6 of these were demarcated; no further mitigation was required on the sites that were demarcated. CFA undertook a field survey of several proposed borrow pit locations and no archaeological remains were identified, apart from the remains of a well. This was recorded before its removal. Two sites were discovered by the Main Contractor close to the location of T40. Both sites were demarcated and micro-siting avoided any potential conflict. A watching brief was conducted on controlled felling which involved the takedown of a small section of enclosure wall. A walkover survey was conducted along the route of the 11kV Overhead Grid Connection Line. Two sites were located and demarcated. Pylon positions were micro-sited away from directly impacting upon the sites. A watching brief was conducted on groundbreaking activity. No discoveries were made. An inspection of all the demarcated sites was conducted post-construction. The inspection concluded that no damage had occurred to any of the sites, other than that which had been previously mitigated.
