Abstract:
In September 2004, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Mr Richard Hattan of Urban Splash Ltd to carry out an archaeological evaluation in advance of the proposed development of land at New Islington, Ancoats, Manchester (centred on SJ 8525 9867). Documentary research has indicated that a textile mill occupied the site by 1800, which, following on from the results of a desk-based assessment (UMAU 2002), had been recommended by the Assistant County Archaeologist for Greater Manchester for archaeological evaluation in advance of development. The evaluation comprised the excavation of five targeted trial trenches, and was undertaken by OA North during September 2004. This was coupled with an archaeological watching brief, which monitored the excavation of a series of test pits within the footprint of the mill to inform the site remediation programme, and was undertaken in October 2004. The evaluation trenches investigated c40% of the footprint of the mill that lies within the development area. The results have demonstrated the main structural elements of the mill to survive, and that they are well-preserved. Within the south-eastern part of the site, basement walls were encountered at depths in excess of 1m below the modern ground surface, although no internal features were revealed. This factor, combined with the paucity of demolition material, suggested that the mill had been subjected to comprehensive dismantling during the mid-19th century.
