A building survey was carried out prior to the renovation of Poplars Barn, Finedon, to fulfil a planning condition. The threshing barn, shelter-shed and stockyard survived in good condition and were shown to be contemporary, having been built in the early 19th century.
Watching brief monitoring and targeted excavations during groundworks associated with the construction of a wind farm at land off Cold Ashby Road, Winwick, Northamptonshire, resulted in the recovery of important assemblages of Late Iron Age and Romano-British finds. Post-excavation study of the materials was undertaken by a team of in-house and external specialists.
Previous desk-based and non-intrusive investigations in respect of a wind farm development near Kelmarsh, Northamptonshire, resulted in targeted evaluation and excavation of selected turbine sites prior to and during construction. Close co-operation ensured that important archaeological sites were excavated without impacting on the development programme.
A geophysical survey using a Bartington Grad601 Magnetometer was carried out on land to the southeast of Holme House, Radcliffe, Nottinghamshire, across two fields comprising a total area of 9.2ha. Evidence of ploughing (ridge and furrow) and a possible rectangular enclosure were identified.
A Desk-based Assessment of land northwest of Cotgrave, Nottinghamshire, was undertaken prior to the proposed construction of a solar farm. A potential for the survival of archaeological remains was identified and as a result a geophysical survey was carried out. The results of both studies helped to inform subsequent targeted mitigation.
An archaeological desk-based assessment and visual impact assessment of a proposed solar farm on land at Cranford St John, Kettering, was undertaken. In the 1950s half of the site was quarried, removing any archaeology. The visual impact assessment concluded that no designated assets had a clear line of site or inter-visibility with the site, resulting
A desk-based report was undertaken as part of a wider Impact Assessment in advance of proposed wind turbine construction. The report included a comprehensive summary of archaeological and cultural heritage assets in the area. Potential prehistoric and roman cropmarks were identified and targeted evaluation trenching was undertaken.
