Description

A watching brief was undertaken by AOC Archaeology Group in 2010-11 during topsoil stripping of six haul roads and sixteen turbine bases for a new extension to the Novar windfarm. Peat was encountered in most areas, and was over 2m deep in places. The watching brief revealed a single ditch feature under the access road. The feature was fully recorded and deemed of negligible significance. No further works are recommended. <1>
