Abstract:
This Assessment has concluded that the route has Moderate potential for revealing significant archaeological remains in specific areas. Evidence for prehistoric ritual/funerary activity has been identified towards the N end of the pipeline route, represented by a recumbent standing stone situated NW of Rookery Farm (approximately 10-15m W of the N end of the route) and two possible barrow sites located to the W and SW of Rookery Farm. The potential for encountering evidence of medieval occupation in the vicinity of the pipeline route has been assessed as Moderate, with specific reference to a section of the pipeline route extending through fields to the NW of Bath Road at Oakhill village, which runs in close proximity to the earthworks of a shrunken settlement of medieval or early post-medieval (16th-17th c.) date. Although aerial photographic evidence suggests that the extant earthworks are located chiefly in the field immediately to the W of the pipeline route, the full extent of the settlement has not been determined; the possibility remains that evidence of archaeological deposits and features relating to medieval/early post-medieval settlement might be encountered along this specific section of the route, extending to the NW of Bath Road.

Note:
This Archaeological Assessment was undertaken by Border Archaeology in response to a request from Bristol Water in advance of engineering works, based on readily available sources of archaeological and historical information, concerning the route of a proposed mains renewal scheme extending between the villages of Oakhill and Gurney Slade (Somerset). This Assessment has concluded that the route has Moderate potential for revealing significant archaeological remains in specific areas. A copy of this Appraisal will be supplied to Bristol Water and remitted to Somerset County Council for their approval.
