Abstract:
Prior to proposed phases of expansion to Peel Place Quarry, OA North was commissioned by Tendley Quarries Ltd to undertake an archaeological investigation to inform an EIA for the area. The investigation consisted of a DBA and geophysical survey on land adjacent to the west of the present quarry at Peel Place. A DBA was carried out in January 2004 and involved a search of primary and secondary maps and records held in the Cumbria Record Office in Whitehaven and the Cumbria Sites and Monuments Record (CSMR) in Kendal. The assessment identified 19 sites of archaeological interest within the area (Fig 2), none of which will be affected by the development. The site is considered to have archaeological potential asextnsive fieldwalking has recovered numerous flint artefacts. Four findspots of flint artefacts (Sites 02-05 and 13-14), a polished stone axe (Site 01), and a hand axe roughout (Site 12) have shown evidence of prehistoric activity in the area. Evidence of occupation during the Roman, medieval and post-medieval periods was also produced. In particular the Roman coin (Site 06) located to the immediate north of the proposed development, the medieval cross fragment (Site 16), and the relict strip fields associated with the settlement of Hallsenna are considered significant. The geophysical survey was undertaken in December 2003 by Stratascan Ltd. The walkover survey was undertaken in March 2004, in which four new archaeological sites were identified (Sites 20-23). The assessment showed that the proposed development area will not impact on any known sub-surface archaeological sites. However, the perceived potential for undiscovered archaeological sites within the area from the desk-based assessment, the geophysical survey and the walkover survey will necessitate further evaluation. It is recommended that the anomalies of archaeological potential located by the geophysical survey are examined by trial trenching.
