A desk based assessment and walkover survey were carried out by Headland Archaeology in 2012-13 to inform a cultural heritage chapter for an environmental statement in support of an application for the Dell wind farm development. The inner study area corresponded to potential areas of impact within the application site. Within this area, all cultural heritage assets were assessed for construction and operational effects. The outer study area extended to 20km from the proposed turbines, which was taken as the maximum extent of potentially significant effects on the settings of heritage assets. A targeted walkover survey of the Inner Study Area was carried out on 2nd to 4th May 2012 with an additional walkover of the area of the northern access track on the 7th May 2013. A total of six cultural heritage assets were identified within the inner study area. These include two assets previously recorded and four newly discovered sites which were identified during the course of the current walkover survey. Three assets appeared to be the remains of shielings and enclosures. <1>
