Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by AMEC Wind Energy and Renewable Energy Systems Ltd., on behalf of Centrica Renewable Energy Limited to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment of the potential impact upon archaeological remains from the proposed cable route for the Docking Shoal Offshore Wind Farm (Wessex Archaeology 2006b), Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm (Wessex Archaeology 2006b) and Lincs Offshore Wind Farm (Wessex Archaeology 2006a). This series relates to a proposed, although as yet unconfirmed cable route through the Wash. To include all potential routes a broad Cable Route Study Area was created, covering the eastern half of the Wash in a rough rectangle of approximately 48 by 20 kilometres. Searches for known archaeological material were conducted within the Study Area. Information was sought from a wide range of local and national bodies, including the Historic Environment Record maintained by Norfolk County Council, the National Monuments Record and the UK Hydrographic Office. The data were then filtered in order to focus only on those sites that lie within the footprint of this scheme (i.e. up to the mean high water mark). The remaining data were used as part of a wider assessment of archaeological potential. This series contains the assessment report and associated GIS data.
