Abstract:
In October 2019, ADAS carried out an archaeological watching brief for Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN). The groundworks were part of the FW and MC 132 kV Overhead Line (OHL) refurbishment project. They consisted of excavations around all four tower footings of MC32 (NGR: ST 93427 73808), one tower footing of MC 31 (NGR: ST 93644 73651), and two tower footings of MC 30 (NGR: ST 93858 73490). The aim of the groundworks was to reinforce the existing foundations of the tower pylons. This took place to the east of the town of Chippenham, Wiltshire (Figure 1). The groundworks lasted a total of four days, and thirteen trenches were excavated. The works were carried out within the permitted development rights of the statutory undertaker SSEN, and therefore were not subject to a planning application. However, the groundworks were located in an area previously noted for containing Prehistoric, Medieval, and Roman archaeological features (Cotswold Archaeology 2010). No archaeology was recorded throughout the archaeological monitoring of the groundworks. The absence of archaeological features may be attributed to the relatively limited impact of the groundworks Upon consultation with the local county archaeologist, Rachel Foster, it was decided that archaeological motoring was no longer needed for these works and the motoring ceased on Thursday the 10th of October 2019.
