Abstract:
The report describes the results of an assessment of potential impacts on the cultural heritage in connection with planned changes to an existing electricity substation on Whittington Road, Oswestry, Shropshire. The assessment identified only one undesignated asset within the Development Area, which is considered to be of low value.The only asset recorded within the Development Area is the line of the former Oswestry, Ellesmere and Whitchurch Railway (Mon No 5892), which forms the southern boundary of the site, although there is now little surviving trace of the line. A thorough programme of archaeological assessment was conducted immediately to the north of the site in 2007-9, and failed to identify any significant cultural heritage remains. Although cropmarks have revealed possible Iron Age enclosures 0.7km to the east, no cropmarks have so far been identified within the arable field which forms the site of the new substation. The recommended mitigation is therefore for a programme of archaeological monitoring through the implementation of a watching brief during the stripping of topsoil within the area of the new substation. Sufficient time should be allowed for the adequate investigation and recording of any features which may be revealed. Consideration should also be given to providing screening, possibly including a bund with tree planting, in order to reduce the visual appearance of the substation in respect to Old Oswestry hillfort and Wat's Dyke.
