Moat Farm, Aldingham, Ulverston, Cumbria: Archaeological Watching Brief

Following a planning application for the conversion of farm buildings to a riding school at Moat Farm, Aldingham, Cumbria an archaeological brief was requested by the South Lakeland District Council following consultation with the Cumbria County Council Historic Environment Service. This watching brief took place during the excavation of a pipe trench and pit for a septic tank. In the vicinity of the farm buildings the original soil horizon was not impacted by the groundworks. The groundworks at the northeast end of the site revealed the original horizon although no archaeological features were revealed. Any surviving archaeological features would not have been impacted by the work. The work was carried out by Greenlane Archaeology in June 2008.
