Abstract:
Ecus Ltd were commissioned by RPSB in April 2013 to prepare a Desk-Based Assessment to inform restoration work along 13.5km of Upper Arun in West Sussex, situated between National Grid Coordinate TQ 0830 3267 and TQ 1496292). The aims of the scheme are to assist in the restoration of an effectively functional riparian corridor, which helps to increase channel and floodplain diversity and enhances its ecosystem services. Known designated and non-designated heritage assets were assessed within a 250 m study area around the site. Whilst there are designated heritage assets within the study area, there is not considered to be a risk of impact to their setting due to the low visual impact of the works. There is potential along the route for palaeochannels relating to the former bifurcating route of the Arun prior to changes to the surrounding landscape by expanding agricultural activity during the medieval period. The site of a Romano-British station lies within close proximity to the Arun where it is crossed by Stane Street. A known settlement extended south from the station and there it is likely that activity from the settlement extended to the river. There are several medieval buildings along the scheme including the moated manor house of Dedisham, and mills at Bucks Green, Slinfold, and Broadbridge. The largest potential along the scheme is for remains such as ditches and boundaries relating to medieval to post-medieval agricultural activity.
