EHG113 - DBA and Walkover Survey - Poolewe and Inverasdale



Catherine Dagg




A desk-based assessment and walk-over survey of the route of the proposed pipeline was conducted prior to work commencing by the North of Scotland Water Authority. The aim of the assessment was to locate known archaeological features and identify unrecorded features, to assess the potential impact of the project on the archaeological record and to make recommendations to mitigate this impact. This would involve forming a judgement on the relative local or national importance or interest of each individual feature, particularly those which lie within the wayleave of the pipeline. An initial desk-based assessment was carried out and this was followed by a walk-over survey of the route of the pipeline. Due to the constraints of time on this project, effort was concentrated along the 20m width of the wayleave. Outwith this narrow strip, archaeological features were only noted briefly to ensure that they would not be affected by the pipeline project. This survey was carried out on July 20th 2000 in good weather conditions. <1>
