Abstract:
The results of a desk-based assessment, walkover survey and historic visual impact assessment carried out by South West Archaeology Ltd. on land at St Ann's Chapel, Calstock, Cornwall, as part of the pre-planning documentation for a proposed housing development. The proposed development would be located on land enclosed from the open moorland of Hingston Down in the 1850s. Up to that date the down had been used for common grazing and, latterly, mining; by the 1850s the moorland was already marked by mineral prospection pits and the Hingston Down Mine was already in operation. The field in question contains a series of linked holloways and mineral prospection pits, although the best examples are located to the north of the proposed development. Most of the designated heritage assets in the wider area are located at such a distance to minimise the impact of the proposed development, or else the contribution of setting to overall significance is less important than other factors. The landscape context of many of these buildings and monuments is such that they would be partly or wholly insulated from the effects of the proposed development by a combination of local blocking from trees, buildings or embankments, or that other modern intrusions have already impinged upon their settings. The assessment suggests that only three assets (Hingston Down Mine Enginehouse, Salters Farmhouse, and the historic settlement of St Ann's Chapel) would suffer any level of harm. There may be an incremental change to the character of the WHS, but in terms of the settlement and the wider landscape, that harm is minimal. With this in mind, the overall impact of the proposed development can be assessed as negative/minor. The impact of the development on the buried archaeological resource would, however, be permanent and irreversible.
