Abstract:
This represents a pre-determination evaluation for Scheduled Monument Consent. This relates to the proposed development of an extension to 4 Low Forge , Wortley, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, which lies within the Low Forge Scheduled Monument (No. 34714). The evaluation featured relatively undisturbed deposits. The lower deposits featured a medieval slag heap, which probably relates to a water powered bloomery. The slag heap was then overlaid by 17th century charcoal deposits that were, in turn, overlain by 19th century and modern levelling deposits. No further site work is recommended but further analysis of the slag and charcoal samples is recommended to provide a fuller and more definitive understanding of the site.
