Description

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by AMEC Wind Energy and Renewable Energy
Systems Limited, on behalf of Centrica Renewable Energy Limited to undertake an
archaeological assessment of the potential impact upon archaeological remains from the
proposed cable route for three offshore wind farms; Lincs, Docking Shoal and Race Bank, the
impact of which is discussed in Wessex Archaeology’s Lincs Offshore Wind Farm
Archaeological Assessment, Docking Shoal and Race Bank Offshore Wind Farms
Archaeological Desk-based Assessment and Docking Shoal Offshore Wind Farm
Archaeological Assessment.
To provide archaeological context for the DBA a broad Cable Route Study Area was created,
covering the eastern half of the Wash and forming a rough rectangle of approximately 48 by
20 kilometres. Searches for known archaeological material were conducted within the Cable
Route Study Area and also the Docking Shoal and Race Bank Study Areas to the north.
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 resultant data were then filtered to focus only
on those sites that lie within the Wash Cable Route Corridor and a 500m buffer zone placed
around it by Wessex Archaeology. The remaining data were used to inform a wider
assessment of archaeological potential of the area. Archaeological interpretation and
assessment of geophysical data (multibeam bathymetry, sidescan sonar, magnetic and single
beam shallow seismic data) was undertaken by Wessex Archaeology and is included in this
report.
