Summary

This archaeological desk based assessment was undertaken as a result of a proposal for the siting of a wind turbine on land to the north east of Catfield in the parish of Hickling. The DBA includes an examination of the Norfolk Historic Environment Record (HER), the Norfolk NMP data (aerial photographic information), a historic map and documentary search and a site walkover.

The results of this DBA suggest that there is a moderate to high potential for encountering prehistoric or Roman material within the PDA. Any archaeological material that is present within the footprint of the turbine bases and along the line of the construction route would be destroyed.
