Power Cable from Upper Shelton to Marston Grid, Bedfordshire. An Archaeological Dektop Assessment

Change log


Appleby, Grahame 


This archaeological desktop assessment was requested by EDF Energy to assess the likely impact of the construction of a c. 2.67km power cable from Upper Shelton (NGR SP 987 430) to Marston Grid, Caulcott (NGR TL 006 432). Evaluation of the archaeological, historical, aerial and cartographic evidence shows the proposed cable crosses an area of prehistoric and Romano-British activity and areas of deserted Medieval settlement. Currently, the majority of the route consists of agricultural land and stands of woodland, with numerous boundaries pre-dating the inclosures of the 18th and 19th centuries.
